Fox Business 2016 GOP primary debate: on Environment


Rick Santorum: China creates 5 times US pollution levels; bring jobs here

SANTORUM: Listen to the Democratic debate: All they do is complain about the hollowing out of the middle of America, and how America is struggling so badly. But they've been in control for the last seven years, and what have we seen? The most important jobs are the ones that fill the middle. For the 74% of Americans who don't have a college degree [those] are manufacturing jobs.

And what's happened? Two million jobs, manufacturing jobs, have left this country because of Barack Obama. Regulations, EPA, workplace regulations, things driving people off-shore all because of his number one priority, global climate change.

Well, let me tell you this, Mr. President. For every dollar of GDP, China creates five times as much pollution as we do here. You want to lower global climate change, bring those jobs back to America and let American workers do that job with less pollution.
