In recent weeks, it has been reported that Miller, who has called for an end to the "welfare state," received federal farm subsidies for land he owned in Kansas in the 1990s and that he and his wife received low-income hunting and fishing licenses when they first moved to Alaska and he was fresh from law school.

Miller also acknowledged his family also received Medicaid for a period and that his wife briefly received unemployment benefits.

While critics, including Murkowski, have labeled him a hypocrite for accepting the types of benefits he now has concerns about or opposes as federally run programs
Miller sees things differently. He has said he doesn't receive benefits currently and that, for a time, he and wife Kathleen struggled, like many others, and needed the help.
