HIRONO AND HANABUSA IRRESPONSIBLY VOTE TO INCREASE OUR NATIONAL DEBT

News Release from www.GOPHawaii.com

Hawaii Republican Party released the following statement on the U.S. House of Representatives voting against raising the U.S. debt ceiling.

This vote was a clear example of what fiscally responsible leadership for out nation looks like. I applaud the 82 Democrats who joined Republicans in this bi-partisan vote against passing more irresponsible debt on to our children, said Jonah Ka`auwai, Chairman of the Hawaii Republican Party.

Unfortunately, our own Representatives, Hirono and Hanabusa, once again displayed how out-of-touch they are with reality by voting in favor of unconditionally increasing our national debt. Congresswomen Hirono and Hanabusa are clearly part of the problem in Washington and have offered no solutions other than spending more money. This vote alone is a good reason why Congresswoman Hirono does not deserve or belong in the U.S. Senate.

Today the U.S. House of Representatives voted against unconditionally raising the U.S. debt celling. The vote was 97 for and 318 against with 82 Democrats voting no.
