Rick Santorum On The Record

Richard John "Rick" Santorum was born May 10, 1958 in Winchester, Virginia to Aldo Santorum who immigrated to the United States at the age of seven, and Catherine (Dughi) Santorum. [See “natural born citizen” as required by Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the US Constitution for President and by the 12th Amendment for Vice President.]

- Santorum quoted: “They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn't get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn't get involved in cultural issues. That is not how traditional conservatives view the world.”

- Santorum voted in favor of the Patriot Act and its re-authorization.

- Santorum does not believe that the NDAA changes the law. However, it does give the president the power to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without trial and due process, an unprecedented violation of the Constitution.

- Santorum is Roman Catholic and publicly against abortion, but voted at least six times to fund Planned Parenthood. “It was against the principles I believe in…sometimes you have to take one for the team”. Endorsed Pro-Choice Arlen Specter.

- Santorum defends freedom of religion, but stated “Privacy is not a Constitutional right”.

- Santorum voted to increase the debt limit five times, adding $3 trillion to the national debt.

- In a single session, Santorum co-sponsored 51 bills to increase spending.

- Santorum said he opposes bailouts, but he voted in favor of the bailouts of the Airline and Steel industries. Santorum declared in 2003 “I am no longer a deficit hawk.”

- Santorum supported the “Bridge to Nowhere” twice, and voted to raise his own pay.

- Santorum quoted: "One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country.... Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that's okay, contraception is okay. It's not okay. It's a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be." — Rick Santorum, interview with CaffeinatedThoughts.com (October 2011)

- Defiant of his church’s decree, Santorum fully supports preemptive war. Santorum has a long history of voting in favor of foreign aid; sent billions to countries like North Korea and Pakistan. Prefers isolationism over diplomacy toward countries like Cuba.

- Under Rick Santorum, deficits would have increased $4.5 trillion over two years, under the intermediate projection, leaving a debt equal to 104% of GDP.

- Santorum’s top contributors are Universal Health Services, Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Achristavest. Santorum was director of the Universal Health Services, which was sued by the federal government over allegations of Medicare fraud. His SuperPac received donations from wealthy mutual fund manager Foster Friess and multi-millionaire William Dore.

- When asked to explain at a public rally why he voted for 'No Child Left Behind', Medicare Part D, five debt ceiling increases, what's limited government about that? Ricks response was: "Vote for Ron Paul, that's what you should do".

I love seeing this used whenever I see something on Santorum. I could not resist calling him out when he came to my community but never thought it would go down in his lore.

The scandal involved living in Virginia but schooling his children on the Pennsylvania taxpayers' dime--he never paid a penny back:

Edited from 11/9/13 on 7/24/14:

Also, Santorum's wife had a medically induced abortion, but he doesn't want anybody else to be able to have that choice AND his wife lived out of wedlock with a much-older abortion provider, who also was the doctor who delivered her when she was born in 1960:
