Vice President Joe Biden is at Iowa State University today where he toured engineering research facilities and spoke with students working in research labs before giving a public speech about the administration’s plans for business.

Biden took questions afterward. An I.S.U. student asked Biden why Catholic institutions are being forced to pay for birth control.

He was also asked about feeding starving children in Africa, the  No Child Left Behind education policy and energy security.
