Presidential wannabe Rick Santorum told the crowd at yet another GOP debate* that gays in the military are a problem, and that he would reinstate DADT.

"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge in 2010. Santorum just told us he's incapable of keeping his oath of office should his religious beliefs conflict with written law.


At the same event, Rep. Michele Bachmann proposed eliminating income tax altogether, because 'it's your money, not the government's money,' although she allowed that the government should keep some money in order to pay wealthy legislators run.

She might want to read the Constitution, which grants the authority to collect taxes in both Article I, Section 2; and in the 16th Amendment.
