A Government OF the Rich, BY the Rich and FOR the Rich

Issa

Rep. Darrell Issa tops the list of Congressional Fatcats at a net worth of $355.4 MILLION.

Issa is followed by

Rep. Michael McCaul @ $101.9 MILLION

Sen. Mark Warner @ $88.5 MILLION

Sen. Jay Rockefeller @ $83.3 MILLION

Sen. Richard Blumenthal @ $76.6 MILLION

Rep. John Delaney @ $68.4 MILLION

Rep. Jared Polis @ $60.2 MILLION

Rep. Scott Peters @ $44.7 MILLION

Sen. Dianne Feinstein @ $41.6 MILLION

Rep. Jim Renacci @ $35.9 MILLION

THREE REPUBLICANS and SEVEN DEMOCRATS in a bipartisan caucus of wealth. If you’ve ever wondered why Congress-critters “just don’t get it” it may well be because they already “have it”. And as a consequence, it is we, the people, who will never get the kind of government and policies which we could expect of a truly representative democratic government.
