Santorum calls Obama health program bad for marriage

Source: Reuters

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum accused Democratic President Barack Obama's administration on Monday of implementing healthcare policies that discourage marriage and hurt families.

The former Pennsylvania senator, trying to rally conservative voters and put pressure on Republican rival Mitt Romney, said Obama's 2010 healthcare overhaul gave couples financial incentives to remain unmarried.

"Do you realize that if you are married under Obamacare, you pay a lot more than if you are living together under Obamacare? A lot more," Santorum told 500 voters packed into Froehlich's Classic Corner restaurant. "Thousands of dollars more for the average American family you paid if you are married."

Santorum's attack was the latest in a series of provocative statements in which he or his staff has touched on religion, healthcare or abortion in criticizing the Democratic president.

11. Well, it's just more proof that the man is baffled by numbers

since two singles with children have to pay for one family policy and one single policy. That costs more than one family policy covering all of them would.

But I don't expect Mr. Patriarch to know this stuff. I don't expect him to know anything that hasn't come from a pulpit.

And if that doesn't disqualify the man from politics, this country is totally fucked.

12. is he playing a game of random word association?

 

I say: bat. He says: peanut butter!
I say: Kleenex. He says: Nigeria!
I say: health program. He says: marriage!

Santorum, you are a very strange man.
