Rick Santorum Says Straight Marriage Helps Economically, But Dodges Gay Marriage Question
Former Senator Rick Santorum stopped by Fox News to promote his new book, Blue Collar Conservatives, where he emphasized that there is less poverty for families with stable married relationships.
Host Neil Cavuto pressed Santorum three separate times whether his argument extends to same-sex couples raising children, but each time, Santorum evaded the question. Though he maintained his opposition to same-sex couples marrying, Santorum refused to address whether such families enjoy the same economic benefits from marriage and stability.
