Biden makes appeal to Virginia’s middle class

Vice President Joseph R. Biden made a raw appeal to Virginia’s middle class, criticizing the Republican presidential ticket for pushing what he says is a blueprint for boosting middle-income taxes while giving trillions in tax breaks to the rich.

Mr. Biden said Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan represent a radical and obstructionist brand of conservatism that would sacrifice education and Medicare to help the wealthy.

Mr. Biden said the GOP is “not your father’s Republican Party.” He added that his former Senate colleague, Virginia Republican John Warner, would never buy in to such extremism.
