Former Pennsylvania senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum says he’d make health care reform the deal breaker on raising the debt ceiling, and told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday he’d let the country go into default rather than allow the Affordable Care Act to stand (via Think Progress).

SANTORUM: [The health care law] is a program that if the president wants to defend, he should stand up and say the 2012 election is about Obamacare. We’ll put this on hold, and make it a referendum on Obamacare.

WALLACE: Well ok that’s 2012, but you’re saying you’d let the country go into default on this issue.

SANTORUM: No I think the president would let this country go into default on this issue.

WALLACE: But you would make that the condition — you’d make that the price?

SANTORUM: Absolutely. Absolutely.
