Pete Coors on Budget & Economy

2004 former Republican Senate Challenger (CO)


If businesses were run like federal budget, they’d be jailed

Coors said he disagrees with President Bush on budget issues. Coors said Bush has allowed federal spending to get out of control. “We’re burning up the credit card,” Coors said. “If you own a business, if you did your accounting like the federal government does their accounting, you’d be locked up.”

Coors did not specify federal programs or services he would cut to reign in deficit spending but said his experience as chairman of Coors Brewing would be useful in making those decisions.
