The U.S. safety net, older than Santorum thinks.
Santorum: “And by the way, all of us came from those countries because we didn’t want those countries to take care of us. When my grandfather came to this country back in 1925, there were no government benefits.”. Really? That’s why people came to America, to avoid anyone taking care of them? Amazing. In any event, the truth-o-meter calls this outright false and talks about the emerging safety net.
