Congressman Brad Sherman talks politics with Patt
Members of Congress are preparing to go back to DC after their recess ends in early September, and are preparing to face a number of hot-button issues. Among them is the unprecedented rate of unemployment, the continuing economic downturn, and challenges in international relations with countries like Iran and Afghanistan. To top it all, mid-term elections are rapidly approaching, elections which could make or break the Democrats’ House majority. In the next few days, Patt talks with House representatives in a short series. Up first, Representative Brad Sherman discusses his plans for economic reform, mid-terms, and dealing with Iran.
Rep. Brad Sherman, D-CA’s 27th District, which includes the west San Fernando Valley cities of Sherman Oaks, Reseda, Northridge, and Porter Ranch; Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade and a member of the House Financial Services Committee.
