Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Miller's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Health Care: "Price gouging by the Medical Industrial Complex is hurting every worker, every family, every senior, and every business in my district. It’s devouring public money we desperately

need for investments in children, R&D and infrastructure. We shouldn’t tolerate this rip-off any longer – especially when we know every other wealthy nation gets equal or better health care outcomes for dramatically lower cost"

  • Education: "In the highest-performing school systems in the world – which are now in countries like Finland, Singapore and South Korea — the caliber of person recruited to the teaching profession is considered a critical national priority. That’s not how we view teaching in America — and it’s time we made a national commitment to change that. My plan to help local districts raise starting teacher salaries to $65,000 and top salaries toward $150,000 is the way to start."
  • Campaign Finance Reform: "When I worked in the Clinton White House, I remember hearing Al Gore say in a meeting that ‘we’ll never do health care reform right unless we do campaign finance reform first.’ As a first-time candidate for office, the truth of Gore’s remark seems all too clear; the money chase warps every issue we face."
  • Israel: "Israel faces an existential threat from hostile neighbors, and its security is paramount. This threat can never be assumed away, downplayed, or forgotten. It is a fact. The over-riding goal of US policy must be to guarantee Israel’s security in the face of this threat, and to help assure that Israel (and America as her closest ally) can deter or defeat any foe."
