This is the Ruling Class.
I’d love to see their net worth BEFORE congress as compared to now. I bet every one of them skyrocketed. After all, the base of congress is CON!
While Feinstein was on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, her husband made tens of millions of dollars from investments in China. And the poor masses in CA and the Berkeley crowd vote for her in droves.
Nancy is worth $101 million?.....and she’s 71 years old?.....so much for the “I’m 40 and you’ll have to buy the liquor” story....lies lies lies......I wondered about the hair color box in the garbage....I’ll bet that wasn’t the maid’s.....
Two terms in house or senate and you are done, either run for president or go home. No grandfathered crap either. If you've had two or more terms at the time the amendment goes thru you are gone for good. We probably need term limits for the Supreme court also.
(And if anyone here really believes that John Conyers could only put his hand on 120 Grand next week, please get in touch with me. I have a bridge for sale.)
Haliburton wasn’t the only one getting nobody contracts in Iraq. Feinstein was directing them to her hubby.

(And if anyone here really believes that John Conyers could only put his hands on 120 Grand, I have a bridge for sale that I'd like to offer to you.)
She had less than a million before she arrived to the District of Corruption. Just following the family business.
Happy New Year
Some people with high taxable incomes are very wealthy. Many people with great wealth have little taxable income. The former group creates jobs. The latter hates competition from upstarts and those below their social station.
“”a football team”” ???
Any idea which one???
Anyone who has seen the 'man on the street' interviews knows it. Almost none of them recognize a picture of Pelosi, or even Biden, but they all know who Snooki is.
The pubbies have quite a few members in the top 25 with the number 1 occupied by someone I was quite surprised to see there.
Alcee Hastings is worth $-$4,732,002???
A lot of these folks, I’d imagine they own a failed business, but Alcee never owned a business.
Did he rack up nearly 5 million dollars in legal fees?
This is the class that should be taxed at 99%, to listen to theDemocrat/Socialist Occupy crowd. Pelosi pronounced them patriots, before the deaths and drugs occurred in their tent cities. What an outstanding hypocrite she is.
Barney Frank owns the Packers don’t ya know.

This is where reform needs to start if Washington is to be cleaned up and given back to the people. No insider trading and abolish any monies or gifts from lobbyists including paid ‘speaking’ engagements. Read Abramoffs book on lobbying and Schwietzer’s book, ‘Throw them all out’ on insider trading and crony capitalism. If every American read these two books they would throw them all out.
