Meet Darrel Miller

Darrel Miller for Congress

Darrel, a lifelong farmer, is running for Congress because too many lawmakers are content to go to Washington and do little more than grandstand and maneuver for political advantage. Consequently, we have a growing backlog of pressing national issues left unaddressed.

Our district is home to a capable citizenry that holds more in common than it does in difference. Darrel is a candidate for common ground and offers a modest proposal: At least pass partial solutions where both parties are already in agreement and continue debate and negotiations on outstanding differences. We need legislators committed to the responsibilities of governing. Darrel will lead as a candidate for common ground.

Can anybody find any common ground?

Our nation's unemployment and debt problems cry out for some bipartisan cooperation. But we mostly get gridlock and maneuvering for political advantage. Economists from Stanford and the University of Chicago have argued that the increase in political uncertainty is one of the factors slowing economic growth.

The Farm BillLearn more about this issue →

The farm bill has finally become law. There is much good in the bill. However, the increases to crop insurance in what should be an austere budget environment are inappropriate.

US HealthcareLearn more about this issue →

The healthcare debate can be considered as two questions: "How do we pay for it?" and "Why does it cost so much?"

"How do we pay for it?" is the question we spend the most time on. "Why does it cost so much?" arises from the fact that we spend 50-100% more per person than other industrialized countries with no better health outcomes on average.
