You CANNOT Be Serious: Rick Santorum Says He Won’t “Make Black People’s Lives Better With Welfare” [Video]

Rick Santorum Makes Racially Biased And Uninformed Statement About African-Americans And Welfare In Iowa

Another day, another Republican talking that racist yang.

Speaking to Republicans in Iowa on Monday, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) said his administration would reform welfare to the point that it would offer no welfare at all.

After suggesting that an expansion of Medicare is really just a plot to make voters more “dependent” on Washington, Santorum added: ”I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them other people’s money.”

“I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn their money and provide for themselves and their families,” he added. “The best way to do that is to get the manufacturing sector of the economy rolling.”

In case you couldn’t tell, that second part was supposed to prove he isn’t racist.

One thing he likely overlooked: white Americans account for the largest percentage of welfare payments each month, mostly because they make up the largest sector of the population.

Welfare is defined by the government as benefits funded by tax dollars, meaning that programs like Social Security, food stamps, veterans benefits, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment and corporate bailouts all fall under that term.

What Santorum seemed to focus on, as many conservatives do, is that black people are disproportionately represented in welfare statistics, along with Latinos, as both populations have much higher rates of poverty than whites.

Dumba$$.

What’s scary though, is the fact that he said this to an audience that APPLAUDED those statements.

SMH. We would have loved to have seen that brother’s face standing behind Santorum with the mic when he first heard those words.
