Congressman Brad Sherman: Town Hall Meeting
Please come to my Valley Town Hall Meeting. This will be a chance for me to hear your views about ObamaCare, taxes, the economy, budget, Social Security and Medicare—and all the other issues facing Congress. By listening to Valley residents, I am able to reflect Valley values when voting in Congress. My constituent services staff will also be on hand to help address any problems you may have with any federal agency. The event, parking and refreshments are free.

Constituent Services Program
We can help you with: Social Security and Medicare, veterans benefits, nominations to military academies, tours in Washington, D.C., visas/naturalization and passports, student financial aid, postal service issues, and Congressional internships.
Affordable Care Act Implementation:
Help with ObamaCare
As you know, there have been significant problems with the implementation of the new healthcare law. While the health insurance exchange in California has operated more efficiently than in some other states, we are available to answer any questions you have about your options under the Affordable Care Act.
A Responsible Budget Deal
Last year, Congress lurched from one fiscal crisis to another. The federal government was shut down for 16 days and we came uncomfortably close to defaulting on our debt. Not only did this foolishness cost tens of billions in government inefficiency, it created an ongoing spectacle that undermined business and consumer confidence, and delayed our economic recovery.
Finally, in December, we reached an imperfect compromise that established federal spending levels for 2014 and 2015. The agreement does not solve most of the big fiscal crises we face over the coming decades. But it was bipartisan and adopted in a timely manner. Most importantly, it allows government agencies to plan their operations and reduces the risk of another government shutdown.
I look forward to discussing this and other issues with you at our upcoming Town Hall meeting on Sunday, January 19.
