Rouda quick to take credit for PPP, now playing the blame game as it goes broke
Steel: Orange County Small Businesses & Workers Need Certainty, Not Politics
Huntington Beach, CA – Harley Rouda is quick – quick with a Tweet, quick to criticize, quick to take credit and quickly left Orange County behind for Washington.
Less than a month ago he was quick to highlight the PPP as a “bipartisan” accomplishment.
One week to the day he was quick to promote it on Twitter, but now that it’s dried up via Washington gridlock, he’s quick to play the blame game.
What he’s not so quick with, however, is challenging his Washington friends who allowed the Paycheck Protection Program to go broke.
“As Chair of the Board of Supervisors, I hear every day from a new small business worried they can’t make payroll or those who have already laid off employees, and we are doing everything we can through the county to assist them,” Michelle Steel said. “Orange County’s small businesses need help now, they need certainty, they need leadership, not politicians who are slow to respond or sit on the sidelines waiting for direction from their bosses in D.C.”
As Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, Michelle Steel has been fighting to ease the burden on taxpayers including calling for a suspension of the jobs-killing AB5, accepting the donation of 16,000 masks and PPE for OC emergency workers and first responders, and will soon announce the members of an Ad Hoc Committee that will begin examining how to help local businesses reopen when deemed safe.
Steel this week said that taxpayer dollars being used as stimulus for illegal immigrants is wrong.
