VIDEO: Hanabusa “can’t say no”

That’s funny.  Hanabusa started her political career by saying “no” to Margery Bronster at the behest of Larry Mehau in order to protect the Broken Trustees of Bishop Estate. 

Here are some of the things Hanabusa can’t say no to:    


  • Cayetano: Hanabusa's Broken Trust connections lead to Ko Olina
  • Hanabusa, Souza tied to Pali Golf course shooters’ mob
  • Fireworks, dirt, and stolen trucks: Colleen Hanabusa and the Honolulu Raceway Deal
  • Will Hanabusa allow DHHL to revert back to the bad old days?
  • Nanakuli Park: Hannemann pounds Hanabusa in proxy fight between Waimanalo Gulch and PVT landfill
  • Hanabusa: “Legislators work very hard and deserve the raise”
  • As “momentum shifts to Djou”, Hanabusa’s “boldly deceptive” campaign implodes: Ads, mailers pulled
  • Hanabusa Ad Misleadingly Claims She “Cut Legislative Salaries”
  • VIDEO: Hanabusa campaign ad nailed for Legislative pay raise “deception”
  • Hooser, Hanabusa predict HB444 will bring gay marriage back before Courts
  • Obama to Inouye: Dump Hanabusa
  • Ed Case quits race: “Dream of a better way forward” crushed by Hawaii Democrat old boys (again)
  • Ed Case to supporters: “Stay involved with some other candidacy”
  • Hawaii DoE: Cost of waste, fraud, and corruption between $191M and $431M per year 


    “The only legislation that Colleen Hanabusa would vote for in Congress is legislation that would hurt Hawaii families and keep small businesses from creating jobs, without any regard for what is best for her constituents.  In complete contrast, Charles Djou is listening to his constituents each day and is working across the aisle to create solutions that will protect the taxpayer and get Hawaii back to work.” – Joanna Burgos, NRCC Spokeswoman

    HONOLULU— Colleen Hanabusa’s new ad has her touting the importance of “passing legislation that best serves the interests of the people of the state of Hawaii.”  Hanabusa’s record as State Senate President shows just whose interests she’s serving.

    Hanabusa voted in support of a 36 percent pay increase for the Hawaii State Legislature the same year Hawaii faced an $869 million budget deficit.  In 2009, Hanabusa was a major proponent of raising the general excise tax on Hawaii’s businesses.  In 2009, she also voted to raise the income tax, transient tax, barrel tax, highway tax and fees and retail sales tax to name a few, all while voting in favor of more government spending. 

    With Hanabusa, what you see is what you get.  And it’s pretty expensive.
