(GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO) – Compass Colorado today launched automated calls highlighting Rep. Ed Perlmutter’s (D-Golden) recent exploitation of the tragedies Colorado has suffered over the summer.
“Ed Perlmutter has no boundaries when it comes to exploiting national tragedies for political gain,” said Tyler Q. Houlton, president of Compass Colorado. “Whether it’s wildfires or mass shootings, Ed Perlmutter will politicize any tragedy to push his big-government agenda and distract from his failed record in Washington.”
Perlmutter first politicized the Colorado wildfires through legislative gimmicks on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. Then, Perlmutter exploited the Aurora shootings to push for strict gun controls and justify Obamacare.
The script is below.
While Coloradans have rallied together in the face of a summer full of tragedies, one congressman has exploited them for political gain.
First, Congressman Ed Perlmutter politicized the Colorado wildfires in a blatant partisan stunt to pit Democrats against Republicans.
Then, Perlmutter exploited the Aurora shooting to further his strict gun control agenda just 48 hours after the tragedy.
And it gets worse. Perlmutter even said the shooting victims wouldn’t be able to get healthcare coverage if Obamacare wasn’t signed into law!
It’s clear Ed Perlmutter has no boundaries when it comes to exploiting national tragedies for political gain.
Call Ed Perlmutter at 303-274-7944 and tell him his partisan tactics are shameful.
This call was paid for by Compass Colorado.
