It’s been well-known inside the beltway that there are more rich Democrats serving in Congress than Republicans.  But Republicans are always branded as the party of the rich.  Ironic isn’t.

Well, here is a list of the top 50 richest Members of Congress, and there are 28 Democrats and 22 Republicans.  In fact, the top 10 is comprised of 8 Democrats and 2 Republicans.

Ironic, isn’t it.

    So how does Herb Kohl have $110 M but owe $105 M ? Talk about leveraged.

    Just one more brick in the wall of hypocrisy known as the Democrat Party.

    And Nancy is about 45% leveraged…next to WI. What is up with his debt? Maybe he took a huge real estate paper loss when his assets were devalued? Like the banks are now forced to do, maybe they should have to “mark to market”? and improve their liquid position.

    One’s worth says less about their party affiliation than how they are willing to part with it.

    And both parties are hypocrites, so that argument is a waste of time.

    Would someone explain how McCain, who lives off his Senate salary and (I presume) military retirement and Social Security, was able to amass such assets in a lifetime of “public service?” Has Cindy kept him that generously?
