RNC Rips Biden for Linking Jobs Bill to Crime

Vice President Joe Biden has recently suggested in public appearances that crime will rise if Congress doesn’t approve President Barack Obama’s jobs plan. The Republican National Committee took him to task for that in a scathing memo from RNC co-chairwoman Sharon Day Wednesday, The Hill reports.

Biden said the bill will increase hiring of law enforcement personnel. And he went after critics who say the bill is only a temporary solution. “Well, let me tell you, it's not temporary when that 911 call comes in, and a woman's being raped, and a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape.”

As for Day, she wrote, “To link well-justified, bipartisan opposition to the president’s latest stimulus proposal to violent crime is intellectually dishonest and reeks of the kind of gutter politics that the Obama administration purports to be above. This is the kind of demagoguery one might expect from backbench bomb throwers, not a constitutional officer of the United States.”
