Santorum Stumps in Southeast Iowa

Written by on July 29, 2011 in News

Rick Santorum says the next presidential election will be the most important since the election of 1860. Santorum is on a 50 city tour of Iowa. He stopped in Mt. Pleasant Thursday to share his concerns about the future of America. The former senator, who also served in the House says if the healthcare reform bill isn’t repealed then Americans will loose their freedom. He maintains the bill is really about control and not about more people getting insurance. He fears if the government runs healthcare then it will end up rationing healthcare. Santorum is a conservative republican who supports limited government and wants to balance the budget. He also wants to end federal entitlements and give welfare control to the states. He claims he has a record of beating democrats to win elections. Santorum’s first test will be the Iowa Straw poll in Ames. He’d like to finish in the top five out of a field that will see 12 or 14 candidates hoping to become the Republican to run against Obama.
