Biden Calls Wall St. Reform Critics "Squealing Pigs"

Defends Dodd-Frank regs.


Vice President Joe Biden, who will be a Democratic presence in Florida next week as Republicans gather to nominate their presidential candidate, on Tuesday compared GOP critics of the Obama administration's Wall Street reforms to "squealing pigs."

Biden's comments showed he has no intention of softening his attack-dog rhetoric, despite widespread criticism of remarks he made last week in which he said presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney and other Republicans would put Americans "back in chains" in order to unshackle Wall Street.
