Rick Santorum on the term "middle class":
Don’t use the term the other side uses. Here’s Barack Obama talking all the time, "the middle class." Since when in America do we have classes? Since when in America are people stuck in areas or defined places called a "class"? That’s Marxism talk. When Republicans get up and talk about "middle class" we’re buying into their rhetoric of dividing America. Stop it. There’s no class in America, and call them on it. America is the place where everybody has the opportunity to succeed. We believe in everybody. We are the party that values the dignity of every human life, not them. Let them take what we rightly own, which is believing in every person and their ability in this county.Stuff I found with a 5 second search on Rick Santorum's 2012 Campaign Web site:
Hogan Gidley, National Communications Director, said: "Rick Santorum stood on the stage tonight and emerged as a candidate ready to be commander-in-chief. Not just the Middle Class, not just Wall Street, but commander-in-chief for all Americans."
On Perry (and his recently announced 20 percent flat tax): "It’s simple and you can put it on a postcard, but it’s a huge shift in the tax burden on to the middle class."
This is why the next President of the United States needs to show true leadership and put federal entitlement programs on a course towards fiscal sustainability. Tragically, President Obama has not shown such leadership. He has expanded eligibility for entitlement programs into the middle class and above.
Santorum Hopes to Rebuild Middle Class: HOLLIDAYSBURG - Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum received a warm welcome Wednesday from a crowd that included local residents and employees of the McLanahan Corp. when he called for the renewal of America's industrial base and a rebuilding of the middle class.It's also amusing to see Santorum telling his supporters to stop "buying into the rhetoric of dividing America" and then going into a riff about what "we believe" versus "them."
