Although an expert in U.S. foreign policy, Biden also has been active in economic policy-making. He implemented the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to rebuild the post-Bush economy and to lay the foundation for a sustainable economic future. He has worked to raise the quality of life for the middle class, and to assure that those intent on achieving a college education are able to do so. Further, the vice president has worked to promote American manufacturing growth and development.
Biden recently raised his fist before a cheering crowd of voters, and said, in regard to GOP ambition to repeal the Obama administration's Wall Street reforms, that the Republicans, "Will put you back in chains!” In view of the many African-Americans in the audience, his remarks were seen as a threat that the Republicans would turn back the clock, and adversely affect that segment of the population. Later in that speech he talked about the defeat of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. He used courageous phrases, saying the administration and the Navy Seals were, “Healing an unbearable wound — a nearly unbearable wound in America's heart.” He called the Seals, “The finest warriors in the history of the world.” He said, “If you attack innocent Americans, we will follow you to the end of the earth. Folks, Governor Romney didn't see things that way. When he was asked about Bin Laden in 2007 here's what he said, he said, ‘It is not worth moving heaven and Earth and spending billions of dollars just to catch one person.’"
Painfully honest, Vice President Biden brings life and hope to America's middle class, and works daily without fanfare for all Americans.
