About the Author

Rick Santorum, a native of Pennsylvania, was a candidate for the Republican nomination for president of the United States in 2012 and became known as a voice for conservatives who didn't feel they were being represented. In June 2012 he launched Patriot Voices, a grassroots and online community of Americans committed to promoting faith, family, freedom, and opportunity. Prior to running for president, Santorum served in the House of Representatives from 1991 to 1995, and in the Senate from 1995 to 2007, where he was known as one of the most successful government reformers in our history. An accomplished author, Santorum penned the 2005 New York Times bestseller It Takes a Family. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

He thinks he has learned some things, is better organized and will garner more money this time around.
Craig Matteson
The Republican party would do well to read Senator Santorum's simple yet promising ideas to save our country, one blue collar conservative at a time.
Cari Pemberton
I think it is a great message and highly recommend the book to anyone who cares about the direction of our country.

Format: Kindle Edition
In his third book, Senator Santorum asks an important question: Who did not vote in the 2012 Presidential Election, and why did they stay home?

The Senator's answer is that Republicans have "neglected to focus our policies and our rhetoric on the plight of lower-income Americans." The "most effective antipoverty tool is a combination of work, education, and marriage" a theme the Senator has spoken about, consistently, for years on the campaign trail.

The Senator backs up his statements with current, statistical facts. Such as: "Since 2009, 14.7 million people have been added to the food stamp rolls, while only a few hundred thousand net new jobs have been created. The staggering fact is that we have added 75 new food stamp recipients for every new job. And the burden on taxpayers to fund this expansion of welfare is growing dangerously."

The Senator advocates replacing ObamaCare, "before it's too late." The Senator proposes a plan to deal with pre-existing conditions and empower states to offer additional policy choices. He asserts that the government does not have the right to "ration medicine, as it certainly will do once the expenses of this enormous new program begin to overrun the budget."

In addition to ObamaCare, there are chapters that address: education, the American Worker, Social Security, Welfare Reform, and the Economy.

This book is entirely consistent with the message Senator Santorum campaigned on during his 2012 bid for the White House. This is an essential read for any conservative seeking to make sense of the questions for the 2016 campaign trail.

"blue collar conservatives" is very hard to put down. sen rick santorum and possible candidate for president gives a great game plan for reaching out the voters and showing how the republicans can take back the white house as well as the congress and senate but mainly this is a book for the frustrated voter who feels like they have no voice and want to know what they can do to make a difference for there community and there country. also recamended: it takes a family by rick santorum, american patriots by rick santorum, every day graces by karen santorum,
letters to gabriel by karen santorum,all josh mcdowell , ben carson , billy graham, and anne graham lotz books

As I read this book it was abundantly clear that Rick Santorum had not only spent time speaking across this nation of ours, but he has also spent time listening. His heartfelt and straight to the point stories of the Americans he has met reach to the very foundation of our nation. Santorum understands the needs and concerns of everyday Americans who are working to make ends meet and make a better life for their kids. He does not however, just present the problems; he presents real and practical solutions. Solutions which will bring America back to the place where the American Dream can be a reality for all Americans. His book is filled with hope, promise, and faith. It was hard to put down!

Format: Hardcover
In a bold move Senator Rick Santorum takes the reins of the Republican Party’s Stigma identity and serves up a New Direction that GOP leaders across the Nation must embrace or continue to hail nothing but continued failed elections on the National level.
The title of the book and content are not what’s expected. The meat drives home the failings of allowing the Democrat Party to control and shape the economic policies that drives the lives of all those who WORK for a living.
Senator Rick Santorum appears to be on a mission to actually do something that has never been done. Rebrand, Restore, Recalculate the minds of those that already hold office and prepare to hold office.
After reading Blue Collar Conservatives I believe that Senator Santorum fully embraces the full spectrum of All Americans at every income level without thinking less of or condemning the poor and without simply celebrating the wealth of the privileged. It is more of a love of all Americans and a desire to bridge and unite a country that has been greatly divided by class warfare.

Obamacare, the issue of the ages. I never thought one man could bring down America, its traditions and its values in two short Presidential terms, but I now feel that Obamacare AKA: “Affordable Care Act” just may be the last nail in the coffin.
However, America has seen trouble times in the past and has always risen above them. The Civil War, WWII and the former Soviet Union deemed “The Evil Empire”. We rose above them with the leadership from the right people at the right times.
Rick Santorum is just the leader we need now to repeal and replace Obamacare before it fully takes root. As stated in “Blue Collar Conservative” chapter entitled “Replace Obamacare Before it’s Too Late” Rick Santorum states “The promise of healthcare for all provided by the largesse of the federal government will not make us stronger. It will lead to less innovation and fewer cures… less choice of caregivers, longer lines, higher cost and lower quality medicine than a private system”.
The problem isn’t health care cost or access it’s an ever growing burden of federal control. Rick Santorum states “Prior to Obama’s taking office in 2009, nearly half of the payments for medical care in this country were already made by either federal, state or local government”. So the answer to better care being more accessible and more affordable is to replace Obamacare and remove the already burdensome controls of the federal government. One thing is for sure, that won’t happen under a Hillary Administration. It will take a grass roots constitutional conservative who holds to traditional American values and has the strength of character to forge a new path.
The Progressive Liberals want to push us toward a top down Western European system that is failing.
