Video: Rick Santorum Compares Medicare to Romneycare

| by Michael Allen

During a stop in South Carolina today, Rick Santorum attacked one if his favorite targets:  Medicare (video below). The GOP presidential candidate promised to turn the government program over to private health insurers (who routinely deny medical coverage) and “free markets” to save money.

Santorum said: “We have to look at how we’re spending our money. In the area of Medicare, it is incredibly inefficient. The Medicare system is simply like Romneycare in Massachusetts…It will eventually mean that a lot of seniors aren’t going to get the care that they need.”
