Vice President Joe Biden speaks at Detroit Labor Day rally

DETROIT (WXYZ) - After the Obama team struggled over the weekend to answer the question "are you better off today than you were four years ago?", today the Vice President had a clear response.

"You want to know whether we're better off," asked Biden. "Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive."

Vice President Biden addressed a supportive crowd after today's annual Labor Day rally in Detroit.

"This country faces the starkest choice in my memory," Biden told the crowd.

Biden took jabs at Governor Mitt Romney and touted Democrats as the protectors of Medicare.

"It's simple folks we're for Medicare, they're for Vouchercare," said Biden. "And if they win people are in trouble."

Biden touched on protecting collective bargaining and keeping jobs at home.

Gwen Thomas of West Bloomfield, who attended the speech and recently had to close up her small business, says she still supports President Obama despite her personal loss.

"Well I think he's still the man because it can't be done in four years," said Thomas.
