The Fire-Blunt Ad

Ad will be appearing in at least one newspaper in Barry County, this week.

This is the last week in which newspapers are willing to run negative political advertising.

Roy Blunt’s Vote is for Sale to the Highest Bidder.

Congressman Blunt betrayed his roots, wife and constituency.

In 2003, Rep. Blunt divorced his wife of 31 years to marry Altria lobbyist Abigail Perlman.

Rep. Blunt has taken hundreds of thousands of dollars from Corporations like Phillip Morris and UPS to pass legislation harmful to the American People’s interests.
In 2002, Blunt quietly inserted a provision benefiting Altria-owned Philip Morris into the Homeland Security Act. The measure was pulled when his Republican colleagues discovered it.

Congressman Blunt tries to bailout his big business buddies with our tax dollars.

• In 2001 Blunt led the effort to secure a $15 billion airline bailout bill for the failing Airline Industry.
• Blunt shepherded a second airline bailout bill in 2003 worth billions.

Roy Blunt voted for the $700 billion Wall Street Bailout which would Include Foreign Banks and Wealthy Foreign Investors like George Soros.
700 billion dollars is as much money as the combined annual budgets of the Departments of Defense, Education and Health and Human Services. It amounts to $2,300 for every man, woman, and child in America.
The plan raises the national debt ceiling to $11.3 trillion. That is $11,300,000,000,000.
