another hit piece
Santorums suggestion does not call for universal forcing on the population of govt insurance whose bureaucrats then control their life or death decisions on treatment with no appeal
What's sad about this article is two-fold. First, it reports zero quotes from Santorum. It is purely some local reporter's take on what was meant in a debate. It also sounds like the debate really is over "forcing" an employer to pay for benefits. There is no logical reason why an employer should have to do anything for any employee other than give a wage.
And if in 1994 you said, "Let's force employers to buy health insurance.", I can see me saying "Let them buy their own health insurance."
And I can then see a reporter either distorting or misunderstanding that or just being a sloppy writer and saying that Santorum wants to require individuals buying their own health insurance.
The second reason this is sad is that someone stayed up all night searching lexus to come up with this.
I suspect the Romney campaign which was taken to the cleaners yesterday by Rick Santorum.
Romney is evil.
The GOP Establishment and MSM were willing to let Santorum off easy as long as he was not getting much traction. But last night, Santorum bloodied up Mitt pretty well, so now they’re going to make him pay.
Nice try. /s Sanctimonious Santorum is a hypocrite. This is the position he attacks Newt for having held.
I agree.. i think this originated or was resurrected by a RonPaulBot list on Santorum. No direct quote from Santorum. no dice.
And neither does Newt's suggestion force life of death decisions.
You miss the point.
Santorum's attack on Newt about this, is hypocritical and using your word, a "hit".
