She’s right. Let her work for minimum wage and contribute her millions to paying down the national debt.

Then put your $5-25M where your mouth is and start giving it away, Rosa.

But, no, you don’t want to redistribute yours, only mine.

Still waiting for someone to explain WHY.

I guess it all depends on what the meaning of "congressional financial disclosure" is.

Apparently, fuzzy disclosure is enough for those who write the disclosure laws.

That’s amazing.Rosa Delauro is said to be a multi-millionaire and she hides it well.She looks like a damned bag lady.

I was asking myself how she managed to become a millionaire in Congress.But then I remembered that Congressmen and woman are allowed to commit insider trading with information they acquire during their committee hearings and such.

Another reason I hate these Liberal S.O.B.’s.

Ya’ll can laugh at her, but she’s simply running the narrative for the DNC. LIVs will lap this up and the GOP is too feckless to refute the lies.

Another millionaire limousine Commie Comrade crying crocodile tears about “income inequality.”

Yet this leftist hypocrite doesn't back up her rhetoric by giving away her wealth to those suffering from “income inequality.”

And if she's like other leftists, she probably doesn't even tip more than 1%.

These people are both predictable and revolting.

Gotta be that. Her hubby Stan Greenberg is president of some political propaganda tank and she has never done anything but be a Rat hack her whole life.

Must be great to get rich off the taxpayers pretending to be concerned.

Dear Rosa,

As you can see, the wealthiest people live in DEMOCRATIC zip codes ..............

http://www.forbes.com/sites/morganbrennan/2013/10/16/the-complete-list-americas-most-expensive-zip-codes-in-2013/

And it’s not even close. Liberals want to attack the income of the working class. They don’t want to have their WEALTH taken away. They’re the ones with all the wealth. All anyone has to do is look at the zip codes. They’re a bunch of liars.

The one percenters CEOs and money managers, doctors and lawyers, as might be expected. But they are also computer technicians, scientists and even farmers. Some are singers and movie stars (even though they may not like to admit it) and the rest of them are spread among various professions.

It is instructive in that the greatest number do not appear to be the bankers and traders at the center of the Occupy Wall Street movement’s ire.

So next time you eat, buy a CD or DVD, get a checkup or wonder how the universe works.....Thank the 1 percenters.....The great thing about it is....you can join the “1 percenters” without having the government get involved.

If she owns about fifteen-million dollars, then she should give it up to those with less than she has and bingo, problem solved.

She won’t have to tax other people to death to satisfy her neurotic need.

Ms. DeLauro, when you give up all you assets and income to be at the median income point, I’ll give you a listen.

Until then, SHUT YOUR FREAKIN PIEHOLE.

Has anyone been threatened by a millionare? I haven’t. Sometimes I go into one of their stores because they have something I want. And I have worked for one of them or another my whole career. Other than that, they pretty much leave me alone, which is more than I can say about the people who want to “do something” about income inequality.

“I was asking myself how she managed to become a millionaire in Congress.But then I remembered that Congressmen and woman are allowed to commit insider trading with information they acquire during their committee hearings and such. Another reason I hate these Liberal S.O.B.’s.”

Both the House and the Senate make their own rules. The House has been controlled by the Republican Party since January 2011. Congresswoman DeLauro is subject to the rules of the House. If the House permits members to trade on insider information, it is the Republicans in Congress who are to blame, not the liberals. The Republicans can change the House rules at any time without the concurrence of the Senate or the President. Their failure to outlaw insider trading by House members must mean they approve of the practice and are beneficiaries.

There is much to dislike about progressives, liberals, Democrats or whatever they call themselves these days. However, we must recognize the both political parties are thoroughly corrupt.

Rosa Delauro looks like the sister to the wicked witch of the west in the original Wizard of Oz.As a matter of fact,if they ever wanted to remake that movie she could take the lead as the Prime candidate for the position.

This woman is so damned bad lookiing she thinks have a scarf around her scrawny neck is going to make her look better.

The road to larger income gap and wealth ownership in this nation started with NAFTA, WTO, WFN. Allowing corporations to go overseas, invest in training of Chinese and Indian workers to do US manufacturing jobs and now IT jobs only allow the ones on top to pocket money while the rest of the American workers are dumped onto the US taxpayers as unemployment and food stamps. The refusal of the Fed Gov to enforce immigration laws and now talk of amnesty will add to US worker woes. We could have gotten away with this when the economy kept expanding with borrow and spend (corporate and gov) but the system imploded on September 2008. To make it worst the American voters voted twice for a far leftist President who created more gov entitlements and tax burden on the surviving businesses. Now we have more part time jobs and wage suppression. While we suffer big business gets bailed out with taxpayers money. Now our economy stands at the few in charge making more, the few American born techies having unique desired attributes get selected to work in bubble hi tech campuses (like Silicon Valley) while the rest of the college grads are not hired because a foreign H-1B worker took his place. Now corporate America wants more H-1B and amnesty for illegal immigrants and keep more immigration while the US economy is still in Recession (until the US gov changed the formula in calculating GDP to include research and art). This false Matrix Illusion will come to an end and big gov/big business types will end up fleeing the country or end up hung from street lamp posts for what they did to America. Dems and GOP need to learn, big gov and big business are the enemies of America. Problem is each party only identified half of the enemy and stuck running in place as the enemy they refuse to acknowledge betrays their goals from behind. Tea Party has exposed the Chamber of Commerce (Big Business) the traitor they are. Dems haven’t figure out that Big Gov is also undermining their chance for prosperity yet.
