Democrats: Seven of the Ten Richest Members of the Congress

Each year, based on required financial statement and annual disclosure forms, the public has access to information about lawmakers’ assets and liabilities, including stock-market holdings, rental properties, checking accounts, credit card balances, student loans and other financial obligations. As a result, the political daily Roll Cal publishes a list of all the members of congress (both House and Senate). These are the ten richest member of congress as of 2012. It is interesting to note that Democrats account for seven of the ten richest members of Congress. This list was comprised prior to John Kerry being named Secretary of State.
