Wow. George Miller was a very involved Congressman. I can't believe 40 years has passed! He deserves to retire and enjoy his life.


I love the poorly educated!!!

John NIchols of The Nation deemed George Miller to be "The Most Valuable House Member of 2013." I thought it was kind of a slap in the face to Keith Ellison, who is out in front on almost every local and national progressive cause, but Nichols probably knew that Rep. Miller was ready to retire. Rep. Ellison will be a tempered radical rousing rabbles in Minneapolis, Washington, DC, and everywhere else for years to come. Here's what Nichols wrote about Rep. Miller:[link]MOST VALUABLE HOUSE MEMBER: George Miller,http://www.thenation.com/article/177654 ... -roll-2013[/link] The senior Democrat on the powerful Education and the Workforce Committee, Miller has been in the House since 1975. But the California congressman has lost none of his fire. With Senator Tom Harkin, he introduced a plan in March to hike the minimum wage to $10.10—with automatic cost-of-living increases annually. Nor did Miller stop there. He cheered on fast-food workers as they struck for a $15-an-hour wage. He tore into Republicans over their “repeal Obamacare” obsession and was even blunter in denouncing GOP plans to cut food stamps. Miller did not simply toe the Democratic line; he opposed President Obama’s proposal to fast-track the corporate-friendly Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. And he was superb on an issue most members of Congress rarely recognize: after a Bangladeshi garment factory collapse killed more than 1,100 workers, Miller denounced US retailers that have “led this race to the bottom over many years,” telling corporations like Walmart that they “have to make a decision now whether you want to have blood on your labels.”

Actually George Miller has brilliantly represented California. I am sorry to see him go. He needs to stay until he is carried out boots first. We need another 216 George Millers.

Mr. Miller never needed to be in the headlines, he was a serious legislator, a true statesman. Head down, eyes on the prize kinda guy. I'llmiss him, too. There aren't many of his kind left in Congress.
