Joe Coors, Jr. was a 2012 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. House representing the 7th Congressional District of Colorado. He lost to incumbent Ed Perlmutter.
Coors's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "Cut federal spending and rein in the size of government. We should weed out duplication and waste in the federal budget and reform entitlement programs to protect their solvency in the future. For every expenditure, we should ask ourselves whether we want to add to the debt we’re passing onto our children for that program."
- Excerpt: "We must repeal the massive trillion dollar takeover of almost one-fifth of the national economy. ObamaCare fails to reduce costs, imposes new mandates and taxes on job creators and cuts $716B from Medicare."
- Excerpt: "We need to keep our promise to America’s seniors by protecting and preserving Medicare. For existing Medicare beneficiaries, Medicare will stay the same. Those who have paid into the system all their lives and would not – and should not - be denied access to care because of cuts in reimbursement rates to doctors, hospitals and nursing homes."
- Excerpt: "The failure of the President to allow a transnational pipeline to move forward shows how out of touch he is with working families in search of jobs and more affordable North American sourced energy. In fact, Ed Perlmutter has flip-flopped on the Keystone Pipeline."
- Excerpt: "Joe Coors has a plan to create new jobs: unleash free enterprise. And while the power of our free enterprise system is widely accepted by voters in Colorado, it has been largely dismissed by the Obama administration and the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Ed Perlmutter."
