Senator Rick Santorum joined 'Mornings With Ken and Bernie' today to discuss his upcoming appearance in Lafayette.  Santorum will be speaking at the Cajundome on Saturday March 9, 2013 at a benefit for John Paul the Great Academy in Lafayette.  When asked what he thought about the erosion of family values in America Santorum replied,

I believe one of the reasons our economy is in the state it's in is because of the breakdown of family values.  We wind up having to take care of problems caused by the breakdown of families.

In addition to family values being eroded Santorum said,

Our educational system is failing.  It's not providing just the academic support that our kids need but a moral framework and spiritual framework as well.  People are not just academic individuals interested in only knowledge but a spiritual component.  Unfortunately our public schools by virtue of government regulations are prohibited from getting involved in those areas.
