American Lung Association targets Upton

The American Lung Association is running ads in Michigan targeting Rep. Fred Upton’s comments about the EPA, the Kalamazoo Gazette reports.

The ad, which features a red carriage and the sound of a coughing infant, with the message “more air pollution means more childhood asthma attacks.”

In an August 5 statement, Upton said “millions of American jobs are in jeopardy because of the costly rules proposed or under development by the EPA, and that’s just one agency.”

However, a February poll commissioned by the Natural Resources Defense Council found that 62 percent of respondents in Upton’s district opposed Congressional efforts to weaken EPA regulations.
