Huntington Beach, CA – A newly released video shows Congresswoman Katie Porter echoing Michelle Steel last week when Steel asked Harley Rouda to set aside partisanship to secure more assistance for first responders and small businesses via the HEROES Act.
Rouda’s response to Michelle: Attack and point fingers.
Rouda, however, is silent in the wake of Porter’s comments (could it be because Porter is a high-profile Democrat?).
“Rouda’s extreme partisanship once again does nothing to help the people of Orange County,” Steel Spokesman Sam Oh said. “While Harley Rouda is attacking and pointing fingers on Twitter, Michelle Steel is hyper-focused on delivering for her community in this time of need.”
Prior to the HEROES Act vote, Steel urged Rouda and others to seek bipartisanship saying, “Rather than wasting time trying to ram through an 1,800 page bill that everyone agrees has little to no chance of becoming law, Congress should work together on a relief package that helps all Americans and is not loaded with a partisan wish list.”
In a video released yesterday, Porter echoed Steel’s comments that the bill was a Democratic wish list, that there was no effort at bipartisan negotiation and saying, “I do not think it is a good look in a time of national crisis to act in a strictly partisan way.”
“The sad truth is Harley Rouda lied to voters when he promised to be bipartisan. Rouda’s proven over and over he’ll say – or not say – anything for power,” Oh said.
