Note: Do Not Bother Charles Djou Tonight During the ‘Outsourced’ Premiere

Undoubtedly, Charles Djou will be glued to his television set tonight during the premiere of the new NBC show “Outsourced” – a comedy about an American novelty goods manufacturer that shipped jobs to India.

But it’s no laughing matter because if Charles Djou had his way, he’d be providing the show’s writers with new material for years to come.

After all, Djou voted to protect the perverse tax loopholes that encourage companies to ship American jobs overseas.

“Charles Djou’s support for protecting tax loopholes that encourage companies to ship American jobs overseas is no laughing matter – especially for those in Hawaii whose jobs may be on the line,” said Andy Stone, Western Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  “Whether it’s support for keeping tax loopholes that benefit job outsourcers, opposition to reining in Wall Street excesses and preventing future taxpayer-funded bailouts or his desire to privatize Social Security, it’s clear Charles Djou’s economic agenda is wrong for Hawaii.”
