The Wealthiest Members of Congress

Love 'em or hate 'em (remember, hate is a sickness), love or despise their policies -- whether they be on taxation, self defense and shooting sports freedom, or their involvement in policy making that has caused the U.S. to face not only a mortgage meltdown, but a financial crisis or gargantuan proportions -- members of Congress are people, too.

Only, some of them are among the wealthiest Americans. It makes you wonder how they come to the conclusions they draw when making policy.

With no commentary, and for what it's worth, here is Roll Call's latest roundup of the wealthiest members of the United States Congress.

Recall also that they retire at full salary with medical benefits and COLA, for life. No piddling FICA/Medicare scheme for these people.

You wonder why so many are opposed to privatizing FICA? Less money for them to play with. they could care less if FICA returns were negative, if they aren't already.
