VP Joe Biden Suggests Rape and Robbery Will Increase if Obama’s “Jobs Bill” is Not Passed – Audio 10/18/11
Now Vice-President Joe Biden is suggesting that if Obama’s $447 Stimulus “Jobs Bill” is not passed, it will mean an increase in rape and robberies. He made the remarks in Philadelphia yesterday:
“The other thing I’ve hear from my friends who oppose this – this whole jobs bill – [is] that this is just temporary,” Biden said. . . Well let me tell you, it’s not temporary when that 911 call comes in and a woman’s being raped, if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape. It’s not temporary to that woman. It’s not temporary to the guy whose store is being held up and there’s a gun pointed at his head, if a cop shows up and he’s not killed. That’s not temporary to that store owner. Give me a break! Temporary.”
