Funny how 7 of the 10 RICHEST members of congress are Democrats - Keep voting for that Hope and Change, eventually they will throw some government scraps your way.

only one percent of Americans are millionaires .  But 48 percent of the U.S. congress are. Think about that in November 2014. Fire all 535 members next election. And Americans read your U.S.Constitution please. Congress spends and authorizes the money  not POTUS.

They can build a fortune for themselves which is commendable but they can't balance a budget?

so why did Obama say that they are exempt from the income level criteria for their 73% subsidy that we taxpayers pay for the premiums on their healthcare insurance while those that are subject to the ACA have to meet criteria for their income levels for their subsidies? 2 sets of rules...

Unlike most Americans the top 1% (includes congressmen) have done very well. Since the recession 95% of all gains have gone to the top 1%. The purpose of getting elected is the benefit those who funded your election and to secure the best jobs for you and your friends once you are out of office.

I noticed that they have not done an article on how much money President Obama has made since becoming a public servant

This article must be B/S  EVERYBODY knows only the Republicans are wealthy.  Every liberal in the country screams it every chance they get yet this article list 7 of the 10 as being Democrats.  How can that be.  Only Republicans have enough money for off shore accounts.  Only Republicans have tax breaks.  And there is no doubt it is all Bush's fault

Just a question to all my friends of the democratic party? Why aren't our friends sharing the wealth. I am not jealous of them but would have to say they should lead by example or do they feel above us.

This won't quit until we require full tax returns, a credit report and accurate listings of assets ANNUALLY from each Senator and pRepresentative.  At least then we can determine who is really paying them.

It's disgusting.

These people  were HIRED to RUN OUR COUNTRY....NOT RULE US or fill their greedy little hands and pockets with as much loot as they can grab.

 

Big Money and Power CORRUPTS easily.... Legal bribes in the form of Political Contributions ?!?!  Garbage

 

Elected officials should LIVE NO BETTER than the poorest of the people...that would be a real eye opener......

 

 

RUN the country...DONT RULE us and all should take a DRUG test and a Polygraph test

It never ceases to amaze me how they call themselves public servants. With that kind of money they should not accept their $ 174,000 a year salaries. that should help balance the budget.  Im a public servant and don't make anything close to what they make.  they should all be ashamed of themselves.

all they do is serve themselves at the taxpayers expense. they should volunteer their time. As usual they didn't furlong themselves or stop paying themselves like the soldiers serving overseas getting shot at. pass this on.

My, my those poor Democraps! Only two of the top ten were Republicans. We don't have to think too hard to figure how many hogs are at the public's trough, be they Elephants or Jackasses. Sorry folks, it's just at my age I flunk couth and political correctness all the time. Nothing but whores and thieves in DC...anything goes for a price. Forget integrity, honesty, compromise and any other virtue held before being elected to the cesspool of America to play roles as members of Congress and the POTUS. Shame on all of 'em!

This might not be the most disgusting thing I've heard, politically, in a long time, but...it's in the top two!

you democrats never stop, 7 of the 10 are democrats idiots. and if you would open your eyes and read you would see most have their money hidden like all the other rich people. you will never get their money, they made it get or inherited it so over it. Maybe if democrats got off their butts and did something in stead of whine maybe they to could make some money of their own.

Sure is easy to be rich when you can act on insider information without any ramifications.

No wonder why they cannot get anything done.   Interesting why they are public servants to the surfs?   Main street suffers.

And I sit here wondering how I'm going to heat my home this winter. Don't suggest LIHEAP, because they have given me money each year to help out for 3 years in a row, but unfortunately for me, I still don't have enough in my account to have 100 gallons delivered! Imagine that! 3 years of help and it still isn't enough to have ONE DROP put in my tank. So I suggested they contact the oil company and request their funds back. They serve no use to me. Shame too ..... Maybe one of these rich guys can have some delivered for me .... yea, I know, keep dreaming!
