Watch: Santorum Talks 'Core Values' In Lake County

Santorum says there are three things families can do to avoid poverty

GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said building the economy and cutting taxes is not enough to restore America to greatness.

He said Americans also needed to return to core family values to be successful.

Santorum said that if people did three things -- work, graduate from high school, get married and not have children before they're married -- then they only have a two percent chance of falling beneath the poverty line during their life time.

Conversely, people who don't do just one of those things have a 74 percent chance of living in poverty, he said.

"We can talk about cutting taxes, we can balance the budget -- but we're kidding ourselves unless we really talk about what makes America work," he said.

Santorum was the keynote Friday at the Lake County Republican Party's Lincoln Day Dinner at the American Croatian Lodge in Eastlake.
