Biden: Romney's assault on teachers

Washington (CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden said teachers "are under full blown assault" by Mitt Romney and "his allies in Congress" Tuesday. In response, the Romney campaign said the vice president was touting "failed" policies in his remarks.

Speaking before a large crowd of educators at the National Education Association 91st representative assembly, Biden blasted Romney for his education reform plan that includes allowing states to utilize Title I funds -originally intended to help schools in disadvantaged areas – to help students pay for private school education.

In response to a statement by Perry during a primary debate Saturday, McCain told CNN, "the moment and window of opportunity [to keep troops in Iraq] has now been closed."

Ron Paul says unemployment is 20%

(CNN) – A week after proposing his economic recovery plan, Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul said Sunday that the true unemployment rate in the United States is higher than the 9.1% estimated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

"I think the downturn in the economy occurred in the year 2000," Paul told CNN, adding that there have been no new jobs since then "and yet we've had a 30 million increase in population."
