Democrat Miller Backs GOP Bill to Abolish 'Marriage Tax'
Washington Post (08/01/00) Vol. 22, No. 49 p.A4; Morin, Richard; Deane, Claudia

Newly appointed Sen. Zell Miller (D-Ga.), who was selected to fill the seat vacated recently by the late Sen. Paul Coverdell (R-Ga.), is expected to support the Republican-sponsored plan to repeal the marriage tax. Immune to voting along party lines, Miller asserts that he would vote against a veto should party leader and friend President Clinton levy it. "I will support the Democrats whenever I think they are right and I will oppose then whenever I think they are wrong, and the same way with the president and his programs," Miller says.
