The Congressional Millionaires
The 112th Congress consists of The Senate and the House of Representatives. The Senate consists of 51 owe-bamacRATics plus 2 semi-owe-bamacRATics; 47 republicRATics. The House consists of 242 republicRATics, 193 owe-bamacRATics.
There are some surprising facts about the millionaires we've elected to Congress.
Like: 53% of the Senate are owe-bamacRATics--but--84% of those (45) owe-bamacRATics are millionaires.
Like: 55.8% of the House of Representatives are republicRATics--and yet--only 56% of those (137) republicRATics are millionaires.
Like: Rep Darrell Issa of California is worth between $195-$700 million.
Like: Sen John Heinz-Kerry is only worth between $181-$281 million.
Like: "pinky" reid's crooked land deals in Nevada should'a given him a net worth greater than $6.8-$10.3 million.
Like: New York's Senatorial contingent (C. Ellis Schumer-"The Putz of Park Avenue" and Kirsten "The Invisible Senator" Gillibrand) ONLY have a combined net worth of $1.1-$2.5 million. "The Putz of Park Avenue" very well may not be as adept at financial/economic 'decisions' as we thought; the "Invisible Senator" is suffering for it, right along with him!!
Like: Barney Frank's net worth of between $1.9-$4.5 million. Frank's Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Countrywide Financial payoffs combined with his Washington area brothel(s), it should be far higher. Maybe he's just "packin' the fudge" regarding his required financial reporting!!
