Miller most recently won re-election in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing California's 31st District.[1] He defeated Bob Dutton (R) in the general election on November 6, 2012. He was displaced from the 42nd District by redistricting.[2] According to a March 2012 article in Roll Call, Miller was one of the top 10 most vulnerable incumbents in 2012.[3]

Prior to his career in the U.S. House, Miller served in the California State Assembly from 1995 to 1999.

According to a Washington Post article in December 2012, Miller is 1 of the 10 most vulnerable incumbents in 2014.[4]

Based on analysis of multiple outside rankings, Miller is an average Republican member of Congress, meaning he will vote with the Republican Party on the majority of bills.

Issues

Legislative actions

113th Congress

CongressLogo.png

The 113th Congress has had 55 out of 5,401 introduced bills enacted into law (1%) as of November 30, 2013. Comparatively, the 112th Congress had 1.14% of introduced bills enacted into law in the first session.[8] For more information pertaining to Miller's voting record in the 113th Congress, please see the below sections.[9]

National security

NDAA

Voted "Yes" Miller voted for HR 1960 - the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014. The bill passed the House on June 14, 2013, with a vote of 315 - 108. Both parties were somewhat divided on the vote.[10]

DHS Appropriations

Voted "Yes" Miller voted for HR 2217 - the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2014. The bill passed the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 245 - 182 that was largely along party lines.[11]

CISPA (2013)

Neutral/Abstain Miller did not vote on HR 624 - the CISPA (2013). The bill passed the House on April 18, 2013, with a vote of 288 - 127. The bill would allow federal intelligence agencies to share cybersecurity intelligence and information with private entities and utilities. The bill was largely supported by Republicans, but divided the Democratic Party.[12]

Economy

Government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "Yes" On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201.[13] At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference.[14] Miller voted for the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[15]

Voted "Yes" The shutdown finally ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funds the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[16] The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Miller voted for HR 2775.[17]

When questioned about whether he would support a clean funding bill to end the government shutdown, Miller responding by simply putting his hand over the camera lens and pushing it away. When questioned about the incident, Miller responding by saying, "I am deeply concerned about the impact this shutdown is having on working families, veterans, and seniors in the Inland Empire. The House has continued to pass funding measures to ensure vital government functions and services can continue. But, any agreement will require both sides coming together. In all my time in Congress, I have never seen the solution to a disagreement come without both sides coming to the negotiating table."[18]

Federal Pay Adjustment Act

Voted "Yes" Miller voted for HR 273 - Eliminates the 2013 Statutory Pay Adjustment for Federal Employees. The bill passed the House on February 15, 2013, with a vote of 261 - 154. The bill would prevent a 0.5% pay increase for all federal workers from taking effect, saving the federal government $11 billion over 10 years.[19]

Immigration

Morton Memos Prohibition

Voted "Yes" Miller voted for House Amendment 136 - Prohibits the Enforcement of the Immigration Executive Order. The amendment was adopted by the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 224 - 201. The purpose of the amendment as stated on the official text is to "prohibit the use of funds to finalize, implement, administer, or enforce the Morton Memos." These memos would have granted administrative amnesty to certain illegal aliens residing in the United States.[20] The vote largely followed party lines.[21]

Immigration reform

Several Republican members of the U.S. House might face a tougher path to re-election in 2014 if immigration reform does not pass in the House, according to a Public Policy Poll released on July 9, 2013.[22]

According to the poll, a majority of voters in seven Republican congressional districts would be less likely to vote for their current representative if he fails support immigration reform. Voters also reported in the poll that they would be less likely to support Republican candidates in the 2014 general election if the Republican House members block the current immigration reform proposal.[22] Miller is one of the seven representatives who serves in a district with overwhelming support for the Senate’s immigration reform plan.[22]

Healthcare

Health Care Reform Rules

Voted "Yes" Miller voted for House Amendment 450 - Requires Congressional Approval for Any Rules Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The amendment was adopted by the House on August 2, 2013, with a vote of 227-185. The amendment requires that all changes to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act be approved by Congress before taking effect. The vote was largely along party lines.[23]

Social issues

Abortion

Voted "Yes" Miller voted for HR 1797 - Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The resolution passed the House on June 18, 2013, with a vote of 228 - 196 that largely followed party lines. The purpose of the bill is to ban abortions that would take place 20 or more weeks after fertilization.[24]

Previous congressional sessions

Fiscal Cliff

Voted "Yes" Miller voted for the fiscal cliff compromise bill, which made permanent most of the Bush tax cuts originally passed in 2001 and 2003 while also raising tax rates on the highest income levels. He was 1 of 85 Republicans that voted in favor of the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257 - 167 vote on January 1, 2013.[25]

Earmarks

A Washington Post investigation in February 2012 revealed that 33 members of Congress helped direct more than $300 million in earmarks to public projects in close proximity to commercial and residential real estate owned by the lawmakers or their family members.[26] According to the report, Miller secured $1.28 million in earmarks to help repave, re-landscape and install new drains along Grand Avenue in Diamond Bar, California. The project, previously reported by The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin of Ontario, upgraded an access road for a residential and retail development that he co-owned with a campaign donor. Miller sold the property months after securing the earmark.[27]

Campaign themes

2012

Miller's campaign website listed the following issues:[28]

  • Taxes
Excerpt: "Since coming to Congress, I have been a tireless advocate of lower taxes and a believer that Americans deserve to keep more of their hard earned dollars. As as our economy continues to recover from a deep and prolonged recession, I believe that raising taxes will only hinder economic growth and create additional burdens for American families, who have seen their wages and home values fall, while the cost of energy and many consumer goods continue to climb."
  • Education
Excerpt: "The future of our nation is dependent upon an educated workforce. Ensuring that our children have access to a quality education remains a top priority of mine in Congress. States and local school district must be given the flexibility they need to meet their needs without onerous regulations and mandates from government bureaucrats."
  • Budget, Deficit, Debt
Excerpt: "Since President Obama took office, out-of-control federal spending has sent our national debt soaring in excess of $15 trillion, putting the future prosperity of our great nation at risk."
  • Jobs & the Economy
Excerpt: "Job creation is vital to our economic recovery. While there have been some recent modest signs of improvement, the sad fact is millions of Americans remain out of work, are struggling to find full-time work, or have dropped out of the labor force altogether."
  • Second Amendment
Excerpt: "I am an adamant defender of the 2nd Amendment. Congress must not improperly hamper the right of law-abiding citizens to bear arms. If we are to honor and uphold the Constitution, this right cannot be infringed. "
