GOP: Governor’s number one priority is satisfying the public sector unions at the expense of everyone else

ABERCROMBIE OUTLINES PLAN TO TAKE CARE OF PUBLIC SECTOR UNIONS

From www.GOPHawaii.com  

Hawaii Republican Chairman Jonah Ka`auwai released the following statement in response to Governor Abercrombie’s State of the State address. 

“This first thing we must do when looking at a speech like the one Governor Abercrombie gave today is look past the presentation and examine the substance.  If you boil the substance of this speech down, it is clear that the Governor’s number one priority is satisfying the public sector unions at the expense of everyone else in the state.  We heard about numerous taxes that he will increase or create to balance the budget and avoid public sector furloughs.  The Governor wants to create taxes for soda, beer and retirement income, he wants to cut funding to Medicare, social services, the Hawaii Tourism Authority and let Aloha Stadium fall apart, just so public sector unions do not have to face furloughs and share in the economic burden.   It looks like the only people benefiting from this “New Day in Hawaii” are the HGEA, HSTA, UPW and UHPA bosses.”
