The first thing we need to know and understand about politicians is very few of them have the people’s best interests at heart. Despite being what I think is the best on the planet, the American political system is saturated with selfishness and over-inflated senses of self-worth. Just as the vast majority of them embellish their own self-worth, we now can realize they seem to grow their own financial worth also.
Take a look at this video and see what you think:
Did you catch that?
Now, let’s take a look at the list.
Be sure to analyze the numbers carefully and put them in their proper perspective. Once you look at them, you will note that this is not a partisan issue. Members of both parties have increased their net worth. But the Democrats have been in power in Congress from 2006-2010, and notice their percentage increase compared to the Republicans. Also take note that two members are showing no net worth at all, for some reason or another. Both are Dems.
There’s some pretty hefty financial growth going on in Congress, with a salary of $174,000 per annum. It’s exceptionally impressive when you see how they have managed to get richer in such a down economy…with sky-rocketing food prices and overall inflation.
All it takes is a critical eye and a willingness to understand the truth. Once you know that the richest people in Congress are one-percenters, you have to ask why Occupy Inc. is only interested in Wall Street and and others who make their money in the private sector. Why aren’t they trying to Occupy Congress and the other blood sucking vermin who have offices in Washington? Better yet, why is no one trying to occupy Heinz Ketchup?
