The Obama administration is defending its $800 billion dollar stimulus bill five years later. The White House claims it was good for the economy and kept five million Americans out of poverty.

On Your World, former GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum said he doesn’t think the stimulus saved the United States economy from a catastrophe.  

Last week, President Obama signed an executive order raising the minimum wage for federal workers. A Congressional Budget Office report suggested that the minimum wage hike to $10 dollars an hour could cause 500,000 jobs to be lost.

“The president doesn’t understand how the economy works,” Santorum said.

He blasted President Obama’s policies for hurting low-income workers and middle class Americans. “The folks that he’s helping… are the folks who are at the top one percent. That’s why you see their income grow.”

Guest host Stuart Varney asked Santorum if he plans on running for president again in 2016. He said, “I left my options on the table for 2016, and if you’re going to leave your options on the table then you got to get around and see people.”

Santorum said he entered the race in 2012 to take on ObamaCare. “I still think that’s the biggest issue confronting our country, not just economically, but also with respect to religious liberty and personal choices and taking care of those who are the least among us.”
