GOP frosh to back millionaire’s tax” said the headline of an article in a D.C. based publication in March of 2012. The “frosh” was Arkansas Congressmen Rick Crawford. His proposal earned him praise from the liberal editorial board of the New York Times. In addition to his massive tax increase proposal, Crawford also opposed limiting spending in the Highway bill to just gas tax receipts, despite the fact that the Highway trust fund has needed repeated bailouts to cover its bloated spending budget.
