Yes, same guy who said Republicans want to let cops and firefighters die to help the rich.
Via The Hill:
Vice President Joe Biden pledged to fight for veterans’ benefits and blamed looming sequestration cuts on House Republicans in an address to the Disabled American Veterans national convention in Nevada on Saturday.
Biden accused the GOP of “using scare tactics now to pass the buck when it comes to defense spending.”
The vice president also laid the blame for the impending defense cuts on Republicans, saying they had insisted on last August’s plan to create a supercommittee and force automatic cuts if they couldn’t find agreement rather than focusing on a serious attempt at bipartisan deficit reduction.
“Our Republican friends in Congress don’t want you to know now that they supported this thing called sequestration,” he said. “I said ‘guys, this ain’t going to work.’ Well guess what? They met. They talked. They argued. They did nothing. They didn’t reach a compromise.”
