Ryan slams 'green pork,' Biden brings up challenger's stimulus requests
Vice President Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan on Thursday traded accusations of cronyism and hypocrisy over President Barack Obama's energy stimulus spending, even as they avoided talk about high gasoline prices during the election's lone vice presidential debate.
Ryan sought to hit President Barack Obama over the failure of Solyndra and two other companies that won Energy Department loans under the 2009 economic stimulus law. But Biden noted sarcastically that Ryan asked the administration to give stimulus money to two home district companies even as he was criticizing the law.
