Honolulu, HI - Congressman Charles Djou (HI-1) has released his fourth TV ad of the General Election entitled "Out of Control":

"The voters of Hawaii know that government at all levels needs to be reformed to be more responsible, efficient and accountable. 

"Based on my experience in the State House, City Council and the United States Congress, I believe that city, state and federal government can all be more efficient. This is something my opponent does not understand. She wrongly believes that government is as efficient as it's going to get. 

"I'm not the only one or the first to disagree with this big-government agenda. Congressman Ed Case noted that Colleen Hanabusa would simply rubber-stamp the reckless and wasteful spending of Congress and I agree.  That's why in the Special Election nearly 70% of voters split their vote between two candidates who represented a break from the status quo and the establishment behind it. 

"I will continue to fight for fiscal responsibility and government accountability because every dollar government wastes comes from a family like yours."

[narrator] “Hear about this?”  

[Colleen Hanabusa]  "I can tell you right now, in government I don't think there's waste, per se.”

[Charles Djou] "You know that's not true. Our government is wasting billions of dollars. We may be the first generation in American history to leave the next worse off.  

"For your children and mine, as your Congressman, I promise to continue to demand that your government be responsible and accountable to you.  

"I'm Charles Djou. I approve this message because I understand that every dollar the government spends comes from a family like yours."
