Santorum Commends Congressman Paul Ryan’s Long Term Budget Proposal

Washington, DC – Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) issued the following statement regarding Congressman Paul Ryan’s budget proposal:

“I commend Chairman Ryan’s long-term budget proposal that tackles entitlement programs, particularly his proposed reforms of the Medicaid program. As one of the principal authors of the 1996 Welfare Reform bill that greatly utilized the block grant system to reform that entitlement, I have seen firsthand the success that can occur by using conservative policy foundations to empower individuals and save a failing program. I also believe the Republicans’ approach to reforming Medicare is right on target to streamline the program, reduce waste and allow future Medicare beneficiaries to have more of a say in the needs of their benefits with a market driven approach. And with over $6 trillion in spending cuts, Congressional Republicans are making the tough choices in the short and long-term to bring the Federal budget under control, and I urge the American people to stand with them in the face of Democratic party obstructionism.”
