The recent 4.1% rise in inflation is a pressing issue for Southern Californians. Everyday expenses, from grocery bills to the cost of postal services, are escalating. The housing market is not immune either, with a majority of the major U.S. cities, including those in Southern California, facing overvalued home prices. In this challenging economic climate, NRCC Spokesperson Ben Petersen has voiced criticism towards Democratic Representative Mike Levin.
Levin’s policy decisions have contributed to the problem. The Congressman opposed legislation aimed at making energy more affordable in America and supported the “Inflation Reduction Act,” which, in Petersen’s view, did not achieve its intended purpose of curbing costs.
Petersen stated, “Inflation is crippling the economy and Southern Californians are struggling to make ends meet. Mike Levin is clearly more interested in toeing the extreme Democrat party line than working to bring down inflation.”
Levin is criticized for prioritizing party allegiance over effective solutions to combat inflation. Petersen’s critique is direct and underscores a perceived misalignment between Levin’s actions and the immediate economic needs of his constituents.
Inflation is up 4.1 percent from September of last year. This is the latest in a long line of bad news for Southern Californians.

Home prices have soared so much that 98 out of 100 biggest US cities are overvalued relative to historical levels
And unfortunately for Southern Californians, Mike Levin is only making things worse.
