Rep. Brad Miller (NC- 13) - A Vote for a Bill Miller Does Not Support...


Brad Miller is now on record of being in favor of repealing a portion of ObamaCare he previously supported when he voted in favor of the usurpation of state and individual liberty through ObamaCare.

The question is ... did he know he was supporting the 1099 burden lost within the breathlessly passed leviathan of ObamaCare when he previously voted in favor of its enactment?
Did Brad Miller know what he was voting for?
Did Brad Miller read the bill?

Does it matter when Democrats didn't want the 1099 correction to pass anyway?

Via TaxProf Blog:

House Democrats proposed repealing a piece of the health care overhaul Friday, a move designed to thwart Republican efforts to do the same thing and declare an early victory in their efforts to repeal the whole law.

Democrats proposed repealing new IRS reporting requirements that small business has warned would be overly burdensome. But they attached a new tax on Americans conducting business overseas— essentially a poison pill for Republicans who are unlikely to support a new tax.

The Democrats hold the majority in the house, but it was brought up on a procedural rule requiring two-thirds support. It failed, 241-154, largely on party lines with Republicans in opposition.

Lost in this is the Democrat's new found PayGo chastity, a chastity so great for this one bill only that they have to pay for the supposed loss in revenue from the 1099 tax which has not generated a dime with new taxes. This bill also required a supermajority to pass which in tandem with the new taxes guaranteed the bill's failure.

The Democrats did not want this correction to Obamacare to pass.... but they wanted it to appear that they supported it. Purely foul politics in practice.

These are the very same people who overlooked paygo when they poisoned a bill to help 9/11 responders with an onerously high and unfunded price tag of $7.4 billion and again requiring a super-majority for the bill's passage.

The Democrats did not want this bill that helped 9/11 responders to pass, but they wanted it to appear that they supported it. Purely foul politics in practice.

This is not governance ... this is political deception. This is Brad Miller lying to North Carolina through political manipulation of our government.

Brad Miller: Not your parent's Democrat.
