Dismal news for the housing market existing home sales falling more than expected last month the National Association of Realtors says sales dropped 3% in September.
Economists predicted only -- 2% -- -- home sales are now on pace to match last year's alarming figures the worst in thirteen years.
Well no condemnation today of some controversial comments by vice president Joseph Biden.
The VP raising eyebrows Tuesday when He appeared in Philadelphia.
And suggested that rapes and murders could spike if congressional Republicans do not pass it White House bill.
That calls for propping up state budgets with another 38 billion dollars to save the jobs of folks like police officers and firefighters.
It echoed similar remarks that He made in Michigan last week.
And Republicans are now firing back on this just for the last couple of hours Wyoming senator John Barrasso said that's.
Vice President Biden made a number of comments that I believe were over the top.
To -- of this the vice president news is attempting to use fear tactics when the American people.
And really to me shows a sign of desperation.
Of the vice president and of this administration because they realize that their policies have failed the American people.
They inherited a bad situation and they have made it worse.
Stranded out Fox -- contributor to move Green who was former president of the women's media center.
And daily news columnist Andrea ten Paris is a Fox News contributor and cohost of the ivory here and a fancy.
Are right so what's -- to me that these Republicans coming up Marco Rubio off also but Jim will also be RNC co chair Sharon Day came out.
And called this irresponsible.
Said it's intellectually dishonest it's better politics and ask where's the outrage from women's and victims' rights groups.
About being used like this you used to be the president of such a group what say you.
While the average is gonna come when a woman has been attacked and the response time from first responders.
Is slow down because that five billion dollars in the American jobs act.
Didn't go to you know shore up the cops and firefighters -- these communities need.
That is why.
Vice President Biden is so passionate about this it totally makes cents.
For him I think to it.
Have this this rant because He has been the leader in combating violence against women for the past twenty years you young -- that handled outside it has -- are are in favor of violence against women.
Absolutely not and I don't think that's what the vice president was suggesting.
But He was making it clear that when you demonize government -- public servants have been demonized so much in this austerity debate over the past couple of years.
It has actual start crystal consequences and those consequences are that your student your child is gonna have forty people in their class instead of twenty.
That when you call 911.
Are you gonna be put on hold.
If this is a very serious situation isn't that -- lot of government cuts isn't a lot of people Republicans in in congress who oppose this but.
Third round of stimulus to the states or is -- the fault of the states.
It's the fault of the states for mismanaging their budgets that's the real issue this isn't about -- right if they -- manage their finances -- not be doling out these generous pension packages.
We wouldn't have to have all this federal spending.
But this is intellectually dishonest -- -- You look at all the money that has been doled out by this administration.
800 billion alone the stimulus act and let's look at the -- Rape in just take New York City that got sixteen billion dollars has gone up.
So the more spending we actually -- prime levels and gone -- you justify that this is pure politics it's scare politics and it's designed to get the women will.
-- and make Republicans look like they don't care.
-- -- an interesting point because that's also what the RNC co -- said she said this is a calculated message because He said it Annie said it and He said it.
And even just at when He was challenged on a by a reporter -- Vice President Biden.
Look at him He doesn't back down watch this exchange.
You're using our great reference to describe Republican opposition to the -- and no -- what I said let's get this straight guys don't screw with me.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- saving rate was up.
Three times -- played -- the numbers go look at the numbers.
Murders up great is up and burgers and that's exactly what I said and if the Republicans don't pass this bill.
-- grateful continue to rise murder will continue to rise Rachel continue to rise all crimes of continue to rise do you think it's appropriate for the vice president's use of language.
And -- -- Yeah well yeah.
That was the end of that is this package that can't be an accident three times He says it or doubles down while Vice President Biden is not known for biting his tongue but.
I think again the reality is we have to look at states where I believe it was in California where women were being asked to pay for their own rape kits.
This is more about.
Are you going to have.
The type of response you need when you call 911 who are you going to have enough when He isn't the place often -- -- -- how many bailouts you know or whatever you're content yet.
Well I think it you it's not about cutting them off it's getting them through this crisis situation an interesting conversation with Lou Dobbs earlier in the shuttle.
Where you talked about public sector jobs are the ones that are really being lost across the country you know that's how He said it wasn't the -- say 400000.
Or let it out He administered firefighters and cops are million on the top top -- and I mean it and it does the vice president point and -- -- -- thirty seconds that it actually could happen if we don't help them.
The rape -- willed well -- this is -- this is on this is crazy and I'll tell you why it's calculated strategy.
Remember in 2010 Harry Reid came to the senate floor and said if we don't pass another jobs delicate time men would -- their wives.
Really I mean this is stretching and Democrats it's gonna backfire it looks desperate.
And it really should outrage when if you're being attacked and He -- on one you better -- that winning isn't an all time high.
We have -- more money than we've ever done a good question is previewing for that you blame and -- who have gotten these lucrative count contracts that help at saint patty's day laying out -- doubling the reaction it I'll pass the blame game out and we have to find solutions and that's what the American Jack was.
It was a solution it would put five billion dollars back into the hands of the states to pay for cops -- bad -- got government stands.
-- debate both of you thanks so much we will be right back.
