WZTK (FM 101.1) was reporting that Rep. Brad. Miller (D, 13th District), has said that he is not planning on holding any town hall meetings to hear from his constituents while he is on recess from Congress. Miller has voiced some support for the health care reform plan of President Obama.
I called his office in Greensboro, and his aide says that he will meet with individuals or groups to discuss health-care reform. Call his office to schedule your meeting: Greensboro Office (336) 574-2909 or toll free: 1-877-272-3435.
The radio station also reports that Miller has received death threats due to his position on health care. If true, then nut-cases who do such things are despicable and should be jailed. But I am somewhat skeptical that such death threats occurred. It is unusual to release such information to the press, as it tends to increase the number of threats. Any security consultant will tell you this. But such dis-information would taint health-care opponents as wackos.
Could this be part of the Democrat’s campaign to paint principled opponents of Government-controlled health-care as crazed, right-wing extremists?
