Catty remarks

Of the top 20 wealthiest people in the federal government (Congress, Judiciary, Executive and appointments to cabinet, etc.), only 6 are Republicans. Two of the Democrats are not elected, but appointed by the President. Next time you hear the President talk about "fat cats," think of those who surround and protect him.

Open Secrets

None, however, are as rich as Julia Dreyfuss or Oprah, who both supported Obama and are worth $2.9 billion and $2.8 billion.

you make it sound like there are no wealthy republicans,and of course, there are many more of them than you would care to mention. You talk about slanted views. I know no poor republicans but I guess it depends on what you call rich and what you consider poor. and as far as celbs go the republicans support came from more than a few well to do celebs.

Although it's true there are plenty of poor Democrats, they are that way because the Democrats control the major cities, and they are poverty pimps, keeping millions just above poverty level by transferring money from you and me, and we live on our pensions.

This entry, however, is about rich politicians. Sorry. I guess you'll need to write your own blog and set everyone straight about the wealth in government "service" jobs.

You missed your chance Norma. The Republicans probably are wealthier because they aren't depending on the government programs. They have jobs. They've finished college. They're married. The 3 biggies for wealth building.
