VIDEO: Santorum Claims Cutting Welfare A Catholic Value

On Saturday in New Hampshire, Rick Santorum was asked by a young Catholic, who full disclosure, happens to be my fiancee, about whether, as a Catholic, he agrees with the Church’s teaching that Government has a large role in providing for the poor.

His answer was frankly a muddled mess about how he was instrumental in cutting welfare and how the poor need to get jobs and, no joke, get married.

Don’t take my word for it. Here’s video of his answer.

So, again, according to Santorum, cutting welfare helped the poor. And if you don’t want to be poor, get a job and get married.

I don’t believe that’s in the Bible, but, I could be wrong.

Also, just having a job doesn’t necessarily keep you out of poverty. There are just as many if not more people who are currently under-employed as unemployed in this country.

But, hey, Santorum’s already gone after homosexuals, women, black people, or blah people as he likes to call them. Why not the poor, too?
