Seven of 10 Richest Congresscritters Are Democrats

The quasi-Marxist demagoguery relentlessly barfed by Democrats is irritating enough without considering this:

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.

Prominent among the diamond-studded Dems is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, with an estimated net wealth north of $100 million. She wants to redistribute the money you work for on behalf of the poor.

Watered-down Marxism has become the official ideology of the elitist ruling class, which exploits it as a pretext to confiscate the wealth we create. They spend much of the loot on votes to keep themselves in power.

It should go without saying that subsidizing poverty does not make there be less of it. But why would zillionaire leftists want to reduce poverty? Then fewer people would sell them votes in exchange for our money.

On a tip from Bodhisattva.

    How many times has Nancy Pelosi profited from laws that she helped enact?

    Many do that, stuff that would get you and I thrown in jail…

    They all engage in what amounts to insider trading……. they exempted themselves from those types of law. If a congress person leaves office poor they didn’t know how to play the game or are really, really stupid.

    Surely they must donate huge portions of their income to immigrants, the poor, gay and lesbian groups, ANTIFA freedom fighters, AACLU, and the environment leaving very little for themselves.

    The word Democrat is simply another word for hypocrisy – plain and simple.

    The Boston campus of the University of Massachusetts is in dire financial straits, mostly because of the ineptitude of the former chancellor. The real problem is that the UMass system is a dumping ground for democrat hacks of all stripes. While students are facing yet another tuition increase, at the UMass headquarters in Boston there are several retired staff members that are “working” as special consultants at nosebleed level hourly rates.

    Massachusetts is a state that fuels a democrat’s wet dream in terms of political patronage. Screw the students and families that don’t have the endless resources of a $70K pension and a $100 an hour gig at UMass.

    I think Churchill said something similar. Whoever came up with it first, they were quite correct.
