Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has some choice words for his rival Mitt Romney’s economic policy stances in a Wall Street Journal opinion article outlining the former Pennsylvania senator’s own economic ideas.

“America's budget process is broken,” Santorum writes. “Our economy and American families are struggling, and the country needs bold reforms and major restructuring, not tinkering at the margins. Obamanomics has left one in six Americans in poverty, and one in four children on food stamps.”

And then comes the attack on Romney. “Meanwhile, my opponent in the Republican primaries, Mitt Romney, had a last-minute conversion,” Santorum writes in the Journal.

“Attempting to distract from his record of tax and fee increases as governor of Massachusetts, poor job creation, and aggressive pursuit of earmarks, he now says he wants to follow my lead and lower individual as well as corporate marginal tax rates.”

That’s a good start, Santorum says. “But it doesn't go nearly far enough. He says his proposed tax cuts would be revenue neutral and, borrowing the language of Occupy Wall Street, promises the top 1 percent will pay for the cuts. No pro-growth tax policy there, just more Obama-style class warfare.”

Santorum promises that he can do better.
