    RNC Chair Doesn’t Care About Unemployment Either

    RNC Chair Reince Priebus backed up Rick Santorum Tuesday following backlash against the presidential candidate's comments that he "doesn't care about the unemployment rate." Priebus told CNN's Soledad O'Brien he agrees with the former Pennsylvania senator. "This election is about big things. It's about liberty and freedom and we've got the two-year anniversary of Obamacare that's coming," he said. "This is another promise that Barack Obama made that prices would go down and access would go up, and in reality we all know that actually prices are going up, companies are taking waivers that Obamacare isn't what everyone thought it would be, in fact it's the opposite." Monday, Santorum insisted that his focus in this election is not employment numbers but "freedom," though he clarified later that "of course" he cares about jobs.
