He was born in Los Angeles, California, was educated at the University of California, Los Angeles, and was a lawyer and a member of the California Assembly before entering the House.
A self-described liberal, Berman aligns with the progressive wing of the Democratic Party. He has voted against amending the constitution to require a balanced-budget, banning the desecration of the American flag, the Defense of Marriage Act, restrictions on abortion, the death penalty, lawsuit reform, banning soft money donations to national political parties, tax cuts supported by the Republican Party, drilling in ANWR, and welfare reform He proposed legislation under which copyright holders would be able to employ technological tools such as file blocking, redirection, spoofs, and decoys, among others, to curb piracy (Peer to Peer Piracy Prevention Act). On some issues he is more moderate: he broke with the majority of his party to vote in favor of NAFTA and has voted for some subsequent free trade agreements. He opposes withdrawing U.S. support for the World Trade Organization. In 1996 Berman voted for the Immigration in the Natural Interest Act of 1995, which cracked down on illegal immigration. In that same year, he also voted to phase out many farm subsidy programs put into place by the administration of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt as part of the New Deal. Notably, Berman voted to authorize military force in Iraq in both 1991 and 2003.
In 2000, Berman received the First Annual Farmworker Justice Award. He is an endorser of the Genocide Intervention Network, pressing for more U.S. action on the genocide in Darfur. Berman is a whore, a traitor and a prick--pure and simple. This Jewish Marxist and Christian-hater is a shill for the Synagogue of Satan bignoses in Hollywood who produce filmic crap. Berman-the-Prick is an example of everything that is wrong with Congress. He is a pro-cockslurping advocate, a flag-burning faggot and a globalist Marxist bootlicker. He stays in office because he whores for the big money Hollywood so-called "entertainment" industry. One quick look at this turd and you know he's a useless wad of vomit. In an effort to warn people about this leper, God pasted the face of a virus-carrying worm on Berman, just so people would know he's a dangerously demented cretin. Berman, which rhymes with vermin, should have been gassed and fumigated long ago before he did any damage to the USA.
