U.S. Rep. George Miller announced this morning that he plans to retire after serving for 40 years in Congress. "Now, I look forward to one last year on Congress fighting the good fight and then working in new venues on the issues that have inspired me. What a wonderful experience this has been," Miller said in a statement.

He said he won't seek re-election in the fall. Miller, 68, was elected to the House of Representatives in 1974 at age 29, and said his top accomplishments include helping to craft and pass the Affordable Care Act.

Trying to take credit for the affordable care act...really why not come out and admit you failed...I'm sure he must have done something good in 40 years.. having a hand in something that will cause the country to go bankrupt and result in the needless death of people at the hands of the government would not be on the list...

When I learned that redistricting took me out of George Miller's district, I was very disappointed. I have always considered him to be someone with a great mind and a big heart. He will be sorely missed. I wish him the happiest retirement possible and I hope he stays involved. Thank You very much, George...

There are plenty of needless deaths at the hands of the insurance companies. Why the uproar here? Leave the killing to big business?

This guy is the poster child for term limits, cannot imagine he is still effective after forty years. If I remember correctly, his last re-election was not a landslide for him. If he faced re-election, I wonder if he would still praise the Obamacare debacle.
