CONGRESSMAN MIKE LEVIN WAS IN THE HOUSE!



At last Tuesday night's meeting, Congressman Mike Levin (CA-49) was generous with his time and gave a terrific talk. We were so lucky to have Mike as one of our members of Congress...we need to work to keep him in office! He is invaluable. Following is the recap of the event from Ann Haley, who is chair of our Publicity Committee...



Rep. Levin (D-Dana Point/Oceanside) gave a wide-ranging look at his efforts in Congress at Tuesday night’s DemOCPAC meeting, and he didn’t shy away from the hottest topics.
Does he think President Trump should be impeached? “No. I think we need to be as careful as the president is careless,” Levin said. Congress needs to know much more and understand the gravity and magnitude of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report before deciding on impeachment, he explained. 
Levin called Mueller’s report “stunning” and said, “The stakes are too high … I want to see the full report” without redactions.
On the crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates: “I want to see them run for a while.” Levin said he’s looking for someone to restore dignity, honesty and truth to the presidency — and make climate change a top issue. 
Levin’s 49th congressional district stretches from south Orange County through coastal northern San Diego County to Torrey Pines and includes Camp Pendleton. The district includes many military veterans, Levin said, listing aid for veterans and cleanup of mold and pests plaguing military housing among his primary efforts in the House. 
He’s also working on getting spent nuclear fuel out of the closed San Onofre nuclear generating station; banning drilling off the California coast; wildfire prevention; and paycheck fairness. 
The House, he noted, passed universal background check legislation and the “Charleston loophole” bill to close a gap in background checks in efforts to improve gun safety. “The NRA has too much influence in our politics,” he said.
An environmental champion, Levin said he’s never seen so much misinformation as he has about the Green New Deal proposal. 
“We’ve already got a Green New Deal in California,” he said, pointing out that the state’s clean energy industry is growing and its solar industry is bigger than the country’s coal industry. 
Levin closed with advice about how to get the word out about issues in a media climate that’s more narrowly focused and more partisan: He needs us all to be his ambassadors.
