Patent Reform Comes at the Expense of Entrepreneurship and the American Worker


By Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum in The Daily Caller

After historic gains last fall, Republicans now control both houses of Congress and can set the legislative agenda for the next two years.

With such a strong conservative majority in place, you would expect Republicans to pursue a pro-growth agenda designed to signal to American workers and entrepreneurs that America is now open for business.

In some cases (energy and taxes in particular), Capitol Hill has a sent a strong message that it intends to move forward with polices that will spur economic growth and job creation. In the innovation sector, however, I am stunned that some conservatives on Capitol Hill that I greatly respect are supporting legislation that would undermine our Constitution and harm American innovation in the name of supposed patent reform.
