In response to a comment above, Santorum was out of the Senate long before 2010. He has signed a pledge not to approve Earmarks if he becomes President. He is a very resolute leader who is successful in getting things done. Romney is throwing money and trash at his opponent as he always does...
You seem to have drawn the conclusion on your own that Santorum will not reduce the debt. FACT: Rick has promised to make spending cuts of $5 trillion and balance the budget in 5 years (See his spending cuts plan at http://www.ricksantorum.com/spending-cuts-and-entitlements-reform)
In the House, Santorum was a leader in pressing for action against House members involved in the Post Office fraud scandal. In the Senate, he wrote the Welfare Reform Act and floor-managed it through the Senate, persuading votes and building a coalition for its passage successfully over a Clinton veto. The same with the Ban on the heinous practice of Partial-Birth Abortion which was vetoed by President Clinton twice, and finally signed into law by President Bush.
Rick Santorum's accomplishments show a strong, persistent leader who keeps working until the job is done. He is the best choice to put America back to work and reduce our debt...He will actually get America moving again. He writes his own successful laws, he does his own taxes, he supports 7 children...He is used to work and he will finish the job!
Romney, Gingrich and Ron Paul are all repeating an old error. In the 1990s Congress reduced the U.S. overseas corporate income tax rate to zero when the profits were brought home, hoping overseas profits would be used to create jobs. But with no requirement to create jobs, the overseas corporations actually used their repatriated profits to pad dividend payments to their stockholders.
Romney, Gingrich and Ron Paul’s plans all repeat this error in their plans to repatriate the estimated $1 to $3 trillion in overseas U.S. corporate profits as President…giving the zero income tax reward to repatriated overseas profits with no restrictions, no strings attached. Will their plans work? History says ‘No, they won’t’.
Rick Santorum’s is the only plan that corrects this problem by requiring that repatriated profits are spent for plant/equipment purchases to be used for new factories inside the USA before they get a zero income tax reward.
Romney threw money 6-to-1 at Santorum in an effort to crush his campaign after Rick's 3-state win Feb. 7th. Yet, even with that money advantage, without the prior votes from the Early Voting/Absentee Ballots, Santorum would have beat Romney handily in his own home state. Greta van Susteren calculated that to have the 10-to-1 money advantage over Obama that Romney would probably need to win, he will have to have a 'War Chest' of $3.6 Billion!
Following last night's Money Forum hosted by Mike Huckabee, both Huckabee and Charlie Gasparino enthusiastically discussed how 'impressive' Rick Santorum was answering probing questions about the banking crisis and jobs creation. Take another look at Rick Santorum's courageous, intelligent candidacy: Watch Rick Santorum make his case on NBC’s Meet the Press. http://www.bing.com/videos/watch/video/rick-santorum-makes-his-case/6giifeb
Romney and Gingrich often rely more heavily on the solutions of the 1980s and 1990s. But they fail to take into full account changes since then. Critical changes and drastically intensified problems that Reagan and Clinton did not have to deal with include the burgeoning population of Single Moms and their children. Forty percent of these families are below the poverty line, and need government assistance, adding heavily to the drain on our tax funds.
The loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs is also now much more serious, due to higher production costs in the U.S. resulting in higher prices for our goods, which therefore are not competitive with lower priced goods produced in China and elsewhere.
Vote for Rick Santorum, the Republican candidate who addresses traditional economic problems with the traditional Reagan solutions…but Rick also addresses newly emerged serious problems with innovative, private initiative solutions. Pick Rick, a strong Reagan conservative with innovative solutions for new problems of today and tomorrow. .
Washington Insider: Newt Gingrich? No, Rick Santorum, No, …Mitt Romney? Bingo! ““I want to go after every grant, every project, every department in Washington to assure that we are taking advantage of economic development opportunities,” Romney tells the group.
And while Romney now often criticizes his opponents for being Washington insiders, in this video he touts his Washington connections. http://www.wmal.com/article.asp?id=2406051&SPID=28718
