Schiff was optimistic that Washington will work in unity as the President begins his second term.
“I think all of us, on both sides of the aisle will hit the reset button to solve [the nation’s issues],” he said.
When asked if he thought the debate over Obama’s health care reform would subside for the President’s second term he said, “I hope we go on and address other needs to work together on fiscal issues.”
Schiff added he felt the first issue Washington needs to tackle is the economy.
