Tax Fat-Cats ? Sure, but Start with Congress !

The Hill has obligingly compiled a list of the 50 Wealthiest law-makers who "reported a minimum net worth of $1.6 billion, about $200 million more than the lawmakers who appeared on 2010’s list."


Who's at the top ? Glad you asked.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) has dethroned Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) as the richest member of Congress, according to The Hill’s annual list of the 50 wealthiest lawmakers.

McCaul reported a net worth of at least $287 million, by far the most of any lawmaker.

Analysis for The Hill’s Wealthiest shows that 2010 was a banner year for many well-heeled members of Congress. Lawmakers including Republican Rep. Darrell Issa (Calif.) and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) saw gains of millions of dollars in their fortunes.
