Santorum compares federal government to drug dealers

Presumed presidential candidate and former PA Sen. Rick Santorum is in South Carolina and he had some harsh words for the federal government’s support of entitlement programs, specifically the recent federal health care bill according to an article by Stephen Largen of the local Spartanburg Herald-Journal

“What these folks are in Washington is no better than a drug dealer,” Santorum told the Palmetto House Republican Women in a speech Monday night.  He also had harsh words for the union protesters in Wisconsin. “They are acting like their drug is being taken away from them,” he said.

His speech was considered a good one by the friendly audience according to the article.

    If Rick Santorum is repulsed by “drug dealer” tactics, then why does he support the corporate health care system? The corporate drug companies are as opposed to the policing of their activities as the street corner thug, and are just as ill-tempered.

    Ah, Rick Santorum… Remember what happened when you compared man-on-man anal sex to man-on-dog anal sex?

    Learn to not be stupid.
