Americans for Tax Reform is investing $1.3 million for television ads in Colorado’s competitive 3rd Congressional District. Democrat Sal Pace is challenging Republican Scott Tipton for the Western Slope seat.

The ad is entitled “Wrong Prescription.”  It begins by explaining that Democrat Sal Pace supports Obamacare, which includes over $700 billion in Medicare cuts nation-wide. Seniors can thank Democrats like Pace for $6.6 billion in cuts to the program in Colorado alone.

The ad will air Saturday, October 13th and will run for two weeks on all major cable channels.

In the district, only Congressman Scott Tipton has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to Colorado voters to oppose higher taxes. Sal Pace has refused to sign the Pledge, leaving the door open to higher taxes.

“Sal Pace certainly is the wrong prescription for Colorado taxpayers. That’s because Washington doesn’t need more politicians who think higher taxes are a good idea,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. “Democrats should get real with taxpayers and seniors specifically about their plan to pay for even more overspending with cuts to Medicare that do nothing to shore up the program.”
