Hanabusa: One Day on the Job, One Broken Promise

Hawaii Republican Party Chairman Jonah Ka’auwai released the following statement today regarding Rep. Coleen Hanabusa's failure to gain a seat on the Appropriations Committee. 

"On her first day at work in Congress, Rep. Hanabusa has broken her first campaign promise.  Rep. Hanabusa and Senator Inouye assured voters last October that she would get a seat on the powerful Appropriation Committee if elected and that has turned out to be nothing more than an empty campaign promise. It is disappointing that they would make such an important promise to the voters just to score political points.    We need honest leaders who will live up to the commitments they make to voters, not politicians who will say anything to get elected.”

The promise of Hanabusa gaining a seat on the Appropriations Committee was announced by Senator Inouye in reaction to then House Minority Leader John Boehner announcing that Charles Djou would be placed on the Committee if re-elected.
