The average IQ in the House is about to drop a little:
In Congress, Miller played a significant role in legislation related to economic recovery (he had graduate studies in economics as well as a law degree) and predatory mortgages. In any issue in which he became involved, Miller studied carefully and by the time he entered the debate, he knew what he was talking about.
You got that right. The first time I saw Brad on C-SPAN he was grilling some dude from AIG (I think it was), and the poor guy drained a whole carafe of ice water trying to replace the sweat. The thing is, he didn't bark and growl like some of his pompous colleagues; when you know your stuff, you don't have to. Here's just a glimpse of what we're losing:
Make no mistake, the redistricting that pulled Brad's seat out from under him wasn't just an afterthought, or merely one element of a state-wide approach, or some sort of payback for redistricting he took part in years ago. He was a threat to some very influential people, who are very skilled at shifting money around.
We can only hope that Congressman Miller will continue, in some capacity, to pursue questions and answers on public policy.
