Santorum's speech at the Republican National Convention

Calling Obama's policies a "nightmare of dependency," Santorum described his coal-mining immigrant grandfather’s “hands that dug his path in life” before attacking the country's immigration system and lambasting Obama’s “government guarantee of income equality."

“My grandfather, like millions of other immigrants, didn’t come here for some government guarantee of income equality or government benefits to take care of his family. In 1923 there were no government benefits for immigrants except one: freedom,” Santorum said to cheers. “Under President Obama, the dream of freedom and opportunity has become a nightmare of dependency with almost half of America receiving some government benefit.”
