Rick Santorum & Patriot Voices PAC endorse David Shafer for Georgia Lieutenant Governor

Georgians will be electing a new Lieutenant Governor in 2018.  I am endorsing David Shafer.

David Shafer is the rare politician who talks like a conservative and then actually votes like one.  He has a phenomenal conservative record in the Georgia State Senate. He wrote Georgia's zero based budgeting law and successfully amended the State Constitution to cap the income tax.

David Shafer is the only candidate for Lieutenant Governor to have been designated a Pro-Life Hero by Georgia Right To Life and rated A+ by the National Rifle Association.

David believes in the fundamental dignity of every human life.  He understands the importance and dignity of work.  He believes the purpose of government is to protect our God given rights.  That is why Patriot Voices is joining me in this endorsement.

Breitbart: Rick Santorum’s Healthcare Plans Could Revive Obamacare Repeal Effort

The new effort led by former Sen. Rick Santorum could revive the prospect of repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Breitbart News released an exclusive interview with Santorum on his plan to repeal and replace Obamacare by block granting the Affordable Care Act to the states, allowing local governments to create healthcare systems that work best for the local populations. Santorum’s plan, sponsored by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), and Dean Heller (R-NV), would also eliminate Obamacare’s individual and employer mandate.

Adam Slavitt, Obama Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) administrator, said that the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill remains “the most significant threat to repeal ACA. Trump is bullying the Senate to take it up.”

Sen. Rick Santorum told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that the Graham-Cassidy bill idea would “put a stake in the heart of single-payer health care.”

The Hill: Santorum: How to get family policy right for working families

Americans have a diminishing confidence in the government’s ability to solve problems. And paradoxically, it is that distrust of government that provides a unique opportunity for the government, now led by conservatives, to solve problems — especially those related to family policy.

Last year, then-candidate Donald Trump campaigned on an America First agenda. It was a message Americans were eager to hear. Trump’s stunning victory in November occurred because voters overwhelmingly endorsed his America First platform.

Americans in Stark, Sandusky, Ashtabula, Portage and Luzerne counties — to name only a few Democrat-stronghold in Ohio and Pennsylvania that President Obama once dominated — embraced Trump’s message and voted in November by large margins for the Republican candidate.

If Republicans hope to make that flip in those counties more permanent, rather than a one-off electoral abnormality, they must champion policies that directly help hardworking Americans. As I argued in my 2014 book Blue Collar Conservatives, for too long, policymakers have overlooked the unique needs of America’s blue-collar, working-class families. President Trump’s victory was due, in no small part, because he so adeptly tailored his message to this segment of the population.
