Santorum Campaigns for Missouri’s “Beauty Contest” Primary, “Winning is Winning”, He Says

Republican presidential candidiate Rick Santorum acknowledged his brief campaign stop in Missouri Monday after is a bid for momentum.
“Winning is winning”, Santorum told KMBC TV Monday afternoon. Santorum has not won a presidential contest this year since he was awarded the iowa Caucus victory after the fact over Mitt Romney in an incredibly tight race.
“Missouri will have a big impact on the general election,” he added.
Santorum says he is aware of the Missouri primary next Tuesday has no delegates at stake. But he says the St. Charles County stop gave him a chance to collect some votes in the primary as well as lay the ground work for the Missouri March 17 caucus, where the votes do count.
“We’ll show we have strength here in Missouri.”
Santorum also picked up the endorsement of David Limbaugh during his visit to the St. Charles Community College campus.
Laughing, Santorum said, “he may not be the most famous Limbaugh from Missouri, but he’s just fine.” Limbaugh is the brother of Conservative radio broadcaster Rush Limbaugh.
Santorum did not rule out another visit to the state soon, if not before next Tuesday vote. Santorum, however, says he might return to Missouri, perhaps Kansas City or some place else, before the St. Patrick’s Day caucus.
On the stump, Santorum talked about his plan to cut taxes for most Americans and many businesses. Santorum supports a simpler tax code with just two tax rates, 10 and 28%.
In the telephone interview, Santorum also responded to a report from the Tax Policy Center(TPC). The TPC says Santorum’s tax cuts would increase the deficit by $1.3 trillion dollars. The TPC claims he does not have a way to pay for the cuts.
The senator discounted the criticism. He says he does not need to pay for the taxes cuts. Santorum believes the cuts will pay for themselves. He thinks they’ll generate enough revenue for taxpayers and American business to grow the economy. He also says the his tax plan will lead to more jobs.
Santorum says the recent economic reports showing the unemployment rate going down are misleading. The Pennsylvania Senator says that rate does not take into account there are more Americans now that four years ago when the economy went into recession.
