If you listen to people like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, you’ll hear them constantly rail against millionaires and billionaires. They complain that “the rich” aren’t paying their fair share. What they don’t mention is that they are talking about members of their own party. Democrats in Congress are the rich ones, not Conservatives.
CNS News reports:
7 of 10 Richest Members of Congress Are Democrats
Seven of the ten richest members of Congress are Democrats while only three are Republicans, according to a recently published analysis done by the Center for Responsive Politics.
The analysis was based on the financial disclosure forms that members of both the House and Senate filed in 2016 and cover their assets and liabilities through 2015.
Rep. Darrell Issa, a Republican from California, was the richest member of Congress, according to the CRS analysis. His estimated wealth was $330,050,015…
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi ranked No. 7 with an estimated wealth of $100,643,521—and was also one of only seven members of Congress whose estimated wealth exceeded $100 million.
The other five Democrats—in addition to Pelosi and Warner—who ranked among the ten richest members of Congress were: Rep. Jared Polis of Colorado ($313,556,221), Rep. John K. Delaney of Maryland ($232,816,089), Rep. Scott Peters of California ($95,569,028), Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut ($81,745,158), and Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California ($79,067,057).
Keep this in mind the next time the Democrats claim they care about the middle class. They’re completely out of touch with average folks.
