Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan at a campaign stop in Davenport, Iowa, teed off on Vice President Biden’s comment Tuesday that the middle class had been “buried” over the past four years.

Ryan said Republicans “agree” that the middle class had been “buried” by the struggling economy.

“That means we need to stop digging by electing Mitt Romney the next president of the United States. Of course the middle class is being buried … they’re being buried by the Obama administration’s economic failures,” Ryan said.

“I got to tell you, help is on the way, we can turn this around,” Ryan added.
