Santorum's hypocrisy: What's good enough for you was not good enough for his wife

From ABC News:
Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., says that the No. 1 health care crisis in his state is medical lawsuit abuse and in the past he's called for a $250,000 cap on non-economic damage awards or awards for pain and suffering. "We need to do something now to fix the medical liability problem in this country," he declared at a rally in Washington D.C., this past spring. But Santorum's wife sued a doctor for $500,000 in 1999. She claimed that a botched spinal manipulation by her chiropractor led to back surgery, pain and suffering, and sued for twice the amount of a cap Santorum has supported.

Maybe more people could take Republicans, like Santorum, more seriously if they tried to hold themselves to the same standards they want to hold everyone else to. This is just one more example of how they don't.
