Rich Legislators Are Doing Fine This Year


Timed during their vacation schedule, Roll Call has released its annual list of the 50 Richest Members of Congress. Short version: our legislators seem to be doing well this year–it takes about $6 million to be named to the list, up slightly from last year. Surprisingly, at least to us, the richest two members of Congress don't have household names: the richest was Rep. Michael McCaul (pictured above), estimated by Roll Call's methods at $294 million. Darrell Issa is a close second, followed by wind-surfing stalwart John Kerry, who's been a staple on the list for more than a decade. Out of even more familiar D.C. powerbrokers, we noticed that Nancy Pelosi ($35.2 million), Mitch McConnell ($9.84 million) and John McCain ($10 million) are also doing just fine.
