In a stunning new story out, a former employee of Harley Rouda’s attests that when Rouda took control of his late father’s real estate agency he almost immediately cut health care benefits for his workers while retaining healthcare for himself and his executives.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
“Rouda took control of his late father’s real estate agency, HER Realtors, in October 2012. Months later, the California Democrat rescinded health care coverage for workers at the agency, according to the longtime former employee.
“We received emails stating that the company was doing away with health insurance—that the expense was becoming too great,” the former employee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told the Free Beacon. “Most employees were shocked and disappointed. There was a lot of angst.” The source also noted that while the insurance cuts were made “across the board” at HER Realtors, Rouda and other top executives at the agency’s parent company—investment firm Trident Holdings—”were still on insurance.”
“With each passing day, voters are learning Harley Rouda lied to them,” said Michelle Steel, Orange County Board of Supervisors Chair and Republican candidate for CA-48. “Congressman Rouda promised to not raise taxes and did, and now we learn that despite claims to support health care he actually cut his employees coverage while keeping his own – shameful.”
