Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum says he made a mistake in 2003 when he voted against the Medicare prescription drug bill, Politico
reports. Santorum also said on “Fox News Sunday” he will make a decision on a presidential run in the next few weeks.
"I would say that that was a mistake," Santorum told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace when asked about Medicare D, which adds about $60 billion to the deficit per year.
"I voted for it for a lot of reasons. ... I think we should have paid for it, that was not an option on the table at the time I voted for it," Santorum said. "It was a 51-49 vote. In retrospect, it should have been a 51-49 vote the other way."
