HOH’s One-Minute Recess: A Former Staffer’s Patriotic Duty

In the years since he last crunched numbers on Capitol Hill for varied Congressional bosses, including former Sens. Pete Domenici (R-N.M.) and the late William Proxmire (D-Wis.), Rob Johnson has done quite well for himself, making big bucks working at, among other places, Soros Fund Management.

So well, in fact, that he’s storming the Capitol today with other “patriotic millionaires” who claim to be ready and willing to kick in a little — or a lot, as the case may be — to help quell the mounting budget deficit malaise.

Johnson declined to state how high a tax rate he’d personally be willing to shoulder but stands behind the belief that he and his “well-heeled” compatriots have a responsibility to pick up the slack during times of need.
