Rep. Brad Miller(D): No Town Hall Meetings

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?

      I believe these folks are just astonished at the level of participation in the protests from what were, heretofore the “silent majority”. Well, silent no more is having an effect, and it is scaring them. Unused as they are to facing actual resistance, they are trying anything to hold on to their agenda, and their power. They can’t fight us with facts, so they resort to smear tactics and childish name calling.
      In my opinion, Miller is afraid to address a crowd because he knows his support for the health care bill is wrong. If he truly believed he is doing the right thing, not just the best thing for his party standing, he would have the courage of his convictions to stand up for them. Pretty much makes him look like a liar and a coward to me.

        Couldn’t agree with you more!

        To which I would add: “and stonewalling us by failing to face their constituents.”
