How are black people taking money away from people in Iowa?

Rick Santorum, GOP presidential candidate and current "star" of the 2012 race to the White House due to his surprising performance in Iowa, is going to New Hampshire with voter momentum and media spotlight. But the former Pennsylvania senator is also taking heat for allegedly making a racially-charged remark about black people – something he has been accused of several times in the past.




Speaking to a roomful of Iowan voters shortly before the Jan. 3 caucus, Santorum answered a voter question about foreign influence on the economy by responding with an answer about entitlement reform, according to CBS News.

"It just keeps expanding – I was in Indiana a few months ago and I was talking to someone who works in the department of public welfare here, and she told me that the state of Iowa is going to get fined if they don't sign up more people under the Medicaid program," Santorum said. "They're just pushing harder and harder to get more and more of you dependent upon them so they can get your vote. That's what the bottom line is."

He added: "I don't want to make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money – I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money."

When CBS News , which pointed out that 84 percent of food stamp recipients in Iowa are white, later asked Santorum about the comment, the candidate said he did not remember the context in which he said it, but that he was probably referencing "Waiting for Superman," a documentary about black children affected by the public school system.

    Black people are taking money away from ALL Americans by collecting a salary for their work. There was a time when African-Americans were willing to work for free throughout their entire lives. What happened to those good old days? Don't worry, America. The GOP is working hard to bring those days back and make American great again.

    So Disko Pickle are you being sarcastic? I sure hope so. Because those yes'em and nosem' days are history. Now I do agree with you regarding trying to bring those old days abuse back into reality, but I think that's been shot in the foot too. Newt Gingrich and the rest of the GOP candidates have really opened up a lot of eyes regarding their off colored comments. Some of their Republican colleagues are quite upset with them, because they feel that they are extending an open invitation to President Obama to remain in 2012 at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    I believe that 84% of the Welfare Recipients in Iowa are WHITE PEOPLE! Nationally the number is a surprising 70%! But don't let Sanctimonious Santorum nor the rest of the rascist Republicans running for president let the facts get in the way of rousing the rabble and the ignorant!

    ...apparently white welfare recipients are threatened by the idea of including blacks into their trailer park dominions.

    ...actually my point was to merely illustrate just how ridiculous it is to equate welfare recipients to a single race, since most people on welfare are actually white.

    Rick is not alone in this assumption and the informed know that it is unfounded. But, it is one of the favorites slurs, barbs, and lies designed to cast negative aspersions upon character and social-economic status of minorities, especially Blacks and Latinos. What a liar!!!

    Come on now this Obama has had the deck stacked againt him from the start. When the right took over the house he had as much chance on accomplishing anything as W's father did. And Sr. lot to a no name from Arkansas. Obama will shine when the house turns over again.

    He had the house for two years, Dems controlled it. I'm not saying he is a demon, but he is like every other president. A sitting duck, with two parties that could care less about the people.

    For 2 year he was trying to figure out what had been dropped in his lap. We can’t spend a billion dollars foe x amount of months to kill 15 or so targeted people and expect not to have collateral damage in the states.
