Rick Crawford, then and now

Posted By on Thu, Jul 29, 2010 at 6:51 AM

The Democrat-Gazette reported this morning that deficit hawk Rick Crawford, the Republican candidate for 1st District Congress, declared personal bankruptcy in 1994 to dodge credit card and medical debts. (Of course he opposes health coverage help for the country's lame and impoverished, too.)

A piquant quote from candidate Crawford's website:

If businesses in America spent money the way the federal government does, they would be in bankruptcy. If people ran their personal finances the way Congress does, they would be in jail.

Or maybe running for Congress as a Republican.
