Rick Santorum Defends Connections To Health Care Industry: ‘You Know, I Have To Work!’ [View all]

&feature=player_embedded


While in the Senate, Santorum also “sponsored at least two Senate bills and pushed to amend a mammoth Medicare overhaul” to include the extra spending that benefited “Universal Health Services, a Pennsylvania-based hospital management company.” After leaving Congress, “Santorum joined the board of Universal Health Services, where he collected $395,000 in director’s fees and stock options before resigning last year.”

Asked about the apparent conflict of interest during an appearance on the Laura Ingraham show this morning, Santorum said, “I was on the board of a public company that because of my work on health care.” “I’m very proud of that work, I’m very proud of the company. You know, I have to work!”
