Santorum explains why we can’t control Federal spending

Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA), a candidate for the Republican nomination for President, appeared at an event in Washington, Iowa, in November 2011. Santorum explains here in plain English why it’s almost impossible to stem the growth of our Federal government or even control spending:

This clip is a continuation of a Q&A session with the audience, and Santorum discusses:

  • rules of government that allow – and even encourage – growth and spending by Washington
  • effect of changing the method by which United Senators are elected (17th amendment to the US Constitution)
  • times when the Federal government has grown dramatically
  • need for bipartisanship and compromise if the President is going to achieve things
  • his strong belief in a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution
