We all have an inkling on how the Congress is seated by powerful and rich persons of society.

But did we “really” know how rich some of the members of Congress were?

Don’t get me wrong. Being wealthy by way of having successful companies, utilizing their inherited funds, and or just having married well, is just fine. Kudos to all.

The reality is, that when a person is well to do, there is more time to think about other issues in life, other than just getting by and trying to find something to eat everyday (true from Ben Franklin, to now). After all, that is the luxury or the award for having worked hard and amounting the wealth.

Sometimes we all have to realize and award persons who’d ran for office, the benefit of the doubt that they are (with their well earned wealth in bank) in the most sincerest forms, going to Washington DC to represent and help the average persons of the US.

The world isn’t straight cut. It’s alway a balancing act. There’s more gray, than we want.

In any case, this was news from July of 2011, but it’s just fun to find out what they are proported to be worth. Just like we love finding out about Justin Bieber‘s girlfriend troubles or what not.
