New Hawaii Governor says the tax hike the people don’t want is “the people’s will”

by editor on March 3, 2011

Libs seem to be completely flummoxed by the tax revolt that’s going on in this country. Take new Democrat Governor Neil Abercrombie, for example. Much like the Kenyan Hawaiian boy he knew who grew up to be President, Abercrombie’s solution to soaring debt is more spending and higher taxes.

Two peas, one pod: The solution to debt is more spending and higher taxes

The Hawaii Free Press has the taxing tale from the Aloha State:

After campaigning on a promise not to raise taxes and specifically not to raise the GE [General Excise] Tax, Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie this week has promised to sign any GE Tax hike approved by the Legislature. Abercrombie says it is up to the legislature to decide “if some want to benefit at the expense of others.” And he is blaming the public for not rallying behind his proposed pension tax and Medicare Part B cuts without which he says “every body’s taxes will go sky-high”.

A recently released Democrat-run People’s Pulse poll shows 68% oppose GE Tax hike—including 49% who “strongly oppose” a GE Tax hike. But the news of Abercrombie’s latest broken campaign promise is drawing the slimmest media attention.

Christina M, a Hawaii resident who sent us this tip, said it best:

Does this remind you of anyone in particular? Maybe his “best friend” the President? At least that is what Ambercrombie keeps saying every chance he gets.

This is the same guy who promised to find Obama’s birth certificate, then admitted it probably didn’t exist.

This guy, within 5 seconds of being governor, released $30Mil that the last gov had in savings so that furlough Fridays would end. Then, not 8 weeks later, was asking the legislature for money because now the state can’t pay its bills. He also wants to raise taxes on alcohol 50% and taxes on non-diet sugary soft drinks by like 10 or 15%!

Pray for me, I have to live in this state with this liberal whack-job!

Is this guy related to Abercrombie and Fitch? They have been ripping off the entire country for years! What a surprise he wants to rip off his constituents after lying through his teeth to them!

Remember when the Hawaiians used to throw virgins into Kilawea? The state should revisit that tradition, only since Hawaii probably doesn’t have many virgins anymore cause it’s a libtard basketcase, they should start throwing liberal politicians in instead…they’ve got enough of them.

I live in Hawaii and believe me I did not vote for that jackass. Anyone that is bald yet has a ponytail has to be suspect for brains.

If the people of Hawaii were stupid enough to actually believe that a democrat was not going to raise their taxes and increase spending, just because he promised not too, they deserve what they are going to get.
I do feel sorry for those that voted against him, but for those who voted for him and those who didnt vote, hahahahahahahahaha. I dont feel sorry for morons that shoot themselves in the foot…..repeatedly. ie Kookafornia. Believe me, I know, we have the same mentality in Taxasota. Here the Suck At The Public Trough crowd and naive morons (including the union slugs) outnumber the sane people so like Kookafornia (and apparently Hawaii) we are doomed.

This state has such a culture of entitlement, its not even funny. People and showed up at his town hall last week and beat him up. However, those who are his biggest supporters, think it is par for the course that the “rich” should pay more than their fair share as long as their entitlement checks come in every month. He also says those whose pension he plans to tax, well, they don’t need it, its just extra income. Its not like that is the only $35,000 they are receiving for the month. They are getting Social Security, too. Typical case of the Ant and the Grasshopper. The Ant, the one who prepared for the future, is forced to house and feed the Grasshopper, the one who played his summer away.

Ya’ll keep electing the same fools to your House and Senate so what do you expect? All your Goobernor can do is sign the bills that make it to his desk.

We have the same problem in New Mexico, the same crooks and fools keep getting elected to the House and Senate by those standing around with their hand out. The difference is we got a Governor elected, a hispanic woman no less, who is scaring the crap out of all the good old boys! She has a veto pen almost as tall as she is and is ready to use it!

I can’t help it if the majority just hears the click of their meal ticket and not who/how it will be paid for.

How dare the people of Hawaii oppose such a brilliant plan by barry’s personal best (hiding) friend.

Liberals will not ever understand that the people’s money is the people’s money and not the damn spending blindly drunken government.

As for the governor, he looks like he is ready for his 4:20 PM appointment

Barry should be playing golf and if he wants to smoke some hard drugs-let him. It certainly wouldn’t hurt his decision making abilities.
