Michelle Steel: Facts don’t matter to sore loser and tax cheat Harley Rouda

Orange County voters know Harley Rouda is a tax cheat and liar, which is why they kicked him out of office last November, and it appears they’ve been given yet another example of his rampant dishonesty.

According to National Journal, “Rouda, who lost by 2 points in a district President Biden carried by a similar margin, is mounting a rematch with Steel. Another DCCC researcher in the email chain pushed back on calling Steel the “QAnon Congresswoman” in the release “because she hasn’t personally expressed support for QAnon” and offered “maybe another adjective like ‘divisive’ or ‘do-nothing.’” But, according to the campaign staffer, Rouda had requested that the campaign include the nickname. The nickname and the line about impeachment remained in the final draft reporters received Thursday afternoon.”

“Sore loser and tax cheat Harley Rouda’s lies know no boundaries,” said Michelle Steel Spokesperson Lance Trover. “Even when National Democrats warned him against lying, Rouda doubled down and demanded to keep spreading falsehoods about Michelle. It’s no wonder voters showed Harley Rouda the door last November.”

  1. Michelle Steel is a Biden Democrat and can’t be trusted either. What is she doing to help lower the highest gas prices in the USA? How about all the missed used funds that were to go to road repairs and ended up on pathways for bicycles and runners. Now the Dems. Say that they need more money to fix the roads and bridges. So as usual they will find another way to Tax working people and those on Soc. Sec. I do not expect anything good from her, unless she is willing to fight gov. NewUm.
    And be honest. Just another greedy politician.

    1. Ken,

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze, and for taking the time to comment on this article.

      Before anything else, I would like to say that, as an independent voter in Orange County, I am weary of politicians slinging mud at one another and ignoring substantive issues, some of which your mention in your comment.

      Regarding your comment: Michelle Steel is a Republican — how can she be a Biden Democrat?

      Michelle Steel represents California’s 48th Congressional District. How can she oppose or influence California State policies that are set by the Democrat-dominated California Legislature aligned with California Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat?

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.

      1. As the editor discussing mud slinging, you published a mudslinging article written and distributed by Michelle Steel’s team. This does not lend much credence or respect to you, the publication, or your response. You completely dismiss the fact that Steel has been an elected official within the state of California and did have influence over state policy prior to being elected to the federal government by only 8000 votes in a District that has a GOP advantage of 35,000. Steel is a do nothing mouthpiece for the GOP exactly like Dana Rohrabacher. Your publication is the microphone.

        1. Shannon,

          Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze, and for taking the time to comment on this article by responding to my own comment.

          The policy of Orange County Breeze is to publish new releases from all parties. We have been following this policy for ten years now. That we publish the articles does not mean that we agree with their content. That’s why we label them at the bottom, and give the author as “courtesy.”

          Regarding Michelle Steel’s legislative record: when she was in the California Legislature, she was in the minority party. As a member of the minority party, it is difficult to even get submitted bills scheduled for committee review. Criticizing her for lack of getting anything done should really be directed at the Democrats who dominate the California State Legislature.

          As for her current Congressional record: she is again serving as a member of the minority party, although the margin is razor-thin. As a freshman member of the House of Representatives that is controlled by Nancy Pelosi, she cannot be expected to get a lot of substantial legislation passed. I would grant her at least a couple of terms with her party in the majority before labeling her do-nothing.

          Regarding her margin of victory in the election: she was running against an incumbent who was largely viewed favorably, except for party affiliation.

          Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.

          1. Thank you for your response. In a few short months in office she voted no on the Paycheck Protection Act. She voted no on the January 6th commission. She voted no on the COVID relief Bill. She has a running start on the do nothing for her constituents. She also tried to take credit for USACE funding that was requested by former Congressman Rouda and approved in December 2020. Rouda was viewed favorably. Interesting that blue areas in Westminster, Little Saigon, and Garden Grove went from a strong blue to bright red. I saw propaganda placed in those areas that accused Rep. Rouda of being a communist and that he was stealing the vaccine and selling it to China. It’s out there but lies work. have you seen the video of Michelle Steel saying there are only two parties in the United States? She says “There are only two political parties in the United States. The Republican party and the Communist party.” Since you post their press releases, you may want to check for accuracy.
