Rick Santorum pro-paid family leave stance at CPAC angers conservatives

Paid family leave is a hot issue on both sides of the aisle. Democrats 100% believe that companies should be forced to provide paid leave for mothers and some Republicans are trying to push the idea through too.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio rolled out a bill last August and it proposed allowing new parents to borrow from social security. Ivanka Trump has made it a focal point as well, working with Congress to pass it as part of President Trump’s “American Working Families” portfolio.

Rick Santorum, the former Senator from Pennsylvania and current CNN commentator, is on the bandwagon too, and is even hosting a discussion about paid family leave at the CPAC convention in Washington D.C. this week.

Conservatives aren’t especially happy about it and many are calling Santorum out on Twitter.
