SANTORUM DISCUSSES HIS PART-D VOTE

In this clip Rick Santorum discusses, among other things, his support of the Medicare Part-D program. That is, of course, the prescription drug program he helped voted into law during the Bush years.

Conservatives have criticized him for this vote, but they forget that one of its most important components was the introduction of free market reforms to Medicare, which had always been a standard government entitlement program.

The idea was to get the pharmaceutical companies competing against one another for Medicare business and thereby bid down drug prices. And it was beginning to work until the Dems retook Congress and sabotaged the program.
