BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - Vice President Joe Biden gave an energetic campaign speech Friday in Beloit, about 10 miles from where his Republican opponent Paul Ryan lives.
Biden said the nation’s generous response to Superstorm Sandy victims proved what his mother told him – “out of everything bad, something good will come.” And the vice president said the same thing applies to the country as a whole.
Biden said there are still significant problems with the economy but there are also, “gigantic opportunities for the country.”
Biden told how President Obama has made economic progress. And he said Republicans, including Ryan, are focused on giving lower taxes to America’s wealthiest families – and it’s nothing new.
Biden said, “We’ve seen this movie before, and it ended in the Great Recession of 2008 – and I’m absolutely convinced the American people do not want to go back.”
After his speech, Biden left for Superior – where he was scheduled to appear Friday afternoon.
