7 out of 10 of the Richest People in Congress are Democrats
Want to get rich? It seems one of the quickest and easiest ways is to just run for Congress. That’s right! You may not realize but the top 7 of the richest people in Congress are Democrats. Did you realize that these members’ net worth is somewhere between $100,000 and $300,000, and most of that money wasn’t made until AFTER they got elected to Congress.
Do you really want to know why Democrats oppose the GOP tax plan?
While Democrats continue to grandstand and act as if they are the party that understands hardworking Americans, a new report sheds light on just how hypocritical — and wealthy — many of these liberals actually are.
According to a report from Center for Responsive Politics, seven of the 10 richest members of Congress are Democrats, while just three Republicans are on the list.
The analysis was collected from financial disclosure forms from members of both the House of Representatives and Senate filed in 2016.
As they are made available to the public, the disclosure forms also contain congressional members debts and assets through 2015.
Of particular note is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — the San Francisco Democrat.
She was ranked seventh with an estimated net worth of $100,643,521. One of the most left-wing leaders of a left-wing party, she was only one of seven members of Congress who have an estimated wealth of more than $100 million.
With an estimated wealth of $238,816,630, Democrat Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia was the wealthiest member of the Senate and the third wealthiest member of both chambers of Congress.
As noted by CNS News, the other five Democrats who ranked in the top 10 wealthiest members of Congress were: Rep. Jared Polis of Colorado, who is worth $313,556,221; Rep. John K. Delaney of Maryland, who is worth $232,816,089; Rep. Scott Peters of California, who is worth $95,569,028; Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, who is worth $81,745,158; and Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, who is worth $79,067,057.
California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa topped the list as the richest member of Congress with an estimated wealth of $330,050,015.
The other two Republicans in the top 10 were Rep. Dave Trott of Michigan and Rep. Vernon Buchanan of Florida.
Trott has has an estimated wealth of $177,149,145 and Buchanan has an estimated wealth of $115,534,558.
With seven of the top 10 richest members of Congress being Democrats, it’s no wonder the party opposes the GOP tax plan that offers more tax relief to middle class families.
Democrats are also the same people who claim to understand the struggles of average, hard working Americans but it appears they couldn’t be more out of touch with reality.
Give me a frickin’ break! These Democrats don’t represent the hard working Americans. Most of them never worked a day in their lives. Are you kidding me? Most of them got elected, made money by doing favors for their friends or relatives, bought or sold stocks off from insider information and made millions in the process. Why do you think they don’t support term limits? And they think they can lecture us on taxing the rich’? Heck…they ARE the rich!
