Talking about health care is apparently bad for your health. After receiving a death threat, U.S. Rep. Brad Miller, a Democrat representing the 13th Congressional District , has opted not to host any public meetings on the issue this month, according to a report by Talking Points Memo.
The district includes parts of central and eastern Wake County and Raleigh.
TPM quoted Miller's communications director LuAnn Canipe as saying Miller will hold one-on-one meetings with interested constituents. The article quotes Canipe as saying Miller had no plans for a town hall before and won't be holding any now, due to this event and the examples he's already seen from the around the country: "Our point is, we're not gonna be bullied into having a town hall so it can then be interrupted by the fake grassroots folks."
