In the August 11 Primary, 17,227 Democrats voted for Roy “Sky” Wyttenbach II of The Jerusalem Project rather than pull the lever for Mrs. Mafia Sheriff. Now Colleen Hanabusa is doubling down in support of Obama’s deeply unpopular scheme to cancel your health insurance and bankrupt Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security.
Hanabusa has a history with bankruptcy. Between 1999 and 2002 Hanabusa and Cayetano short changed the Hawaii ERS--launching today’s multi-billion dollar Hawaii pension crisis.
Now she’s lining up with the most unpopular politician in Hawaii—Neil Abercrombie—in support of his efforts to gut the Hawaii Prepaid Health Care Act.
Here’s the message sent out to supporters from the Hanabusa campaign:
The results are in: we won the primary – which means the general election campaign starts now.
The biggest story today, though, is that Mitt Romney chose his running mate: Paul Ryan -- the Congressman whose budget proposal would end Medicare as we know it, slash Medicaid, and cut services for working families while giving huge tax breaks to millionaires.
If there was any doubt that national Republicans want to radically change the America we know and love, today was your answer.
There are 86 days left until Election Day. Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid -- it is all at stake.
We have to win. As I said in my speech to the Hilo Grand Rally Friday night, when others try to take our nation backwards, we will all say no. Let's build on our victory, stand together, and continue to fight for seniors, students, and families.
Thank you for all you have done to help us reach this point, and I look toward to working with you as we build toward November.
Mahalo for standing with me,
