Candidate Coors: stop government intrusion on the opportunity society

Joe Coors, a Republican who announced his run for Colorado’s 7th Congressional District on Tuesday, cited his motivation to stop the ever-expanding reach of government that’s harming the opportunity society.

“I’m running for Congress because the American Dream is rapidly vanishing as government expands its intrusion in our daily lives,” he said. “And I look at my four children [and] eight grandchildren and I wonder, are they going to have the same opportunity that I had when I started my family and career?”

Coors cited unemployment, the economy and the budget deficit as some of the biggest issues facing our country.

“The federal government has a staggering budget deficit well over a trillion dollars. And for the last three years, it’s projected to be that amount going forward for the next decade. A trillion dollars, that’s a thousand billion. If you spend a dollar every second of the year for the next 30,000 years, you still wouldn’t get to a trillion. It’s a staggering number.”

Coors will face three-term Democratic U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter in November. The observations by Coors at Red Rocks Community College are a stark contrast with Perlmutter, who has consistently voted with Pres. Obama for more government and bigger deficits.

Since taking office in 2007, Perlmutter has earned the grade of “F” every year from the National Taxpayers Union and is a proponent of the death tax, which WhoSaidYouSaid documented in 2010.
