    Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan speaks during a campaign event, Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012 in Derry, N.H.

    Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan responded to Vice President Joe Biden's line that the middle class has been buried over the last four years at a stop in Burlington, Iowa — his final stop on a Hawkeye State bus tour.

    "We agree," Ryan told the audience after repeating Biden's line. "That means we need to stop digging by electing Mitt Romney the next president of the United States."

    "Of course the middle class has been buried. They're being buried by regulations, they're being buried by taxes, they're being buried by borrowing, they're being buried by the Obama administration," he continued.
