Center For Responsive Politics 2008 Congressional Net Worth Analysis: Are Jews In The 111th Congress Richer Than Other Members Of Congress?

On November 4th, 2009, the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) published the results of their analysis of the median wealth of members of Congress. They found that, while current congressional members' median wealth (net worth) dropped nearly 5 percent in 2008 when compared to the prior year, there are still 237 millionaires still serving in Congress. This constitutes 44 percent of the members of that body; in contrast, only one percent of all Americans are millionaires.

The complete analysis is accessible HERE. However, it does not provide a list of all members of Congress; instead, it merely provides a list of the top 25 members of Congress in median net worth. The top 25 senators are shown HERE, and the top 25 representatives HERE.

To find any other member of Congress:

-- Download the full list in either CSV, XML, or JSON format.
-- Go to the Database Search Page, and select the member of Congress of interest.

A short explanation of their methodology: It is difficult to gauge what a lawmaker is worth based on what they file because the disclosure forms do not require exact values. Instead, the lawmaker reports the range of value into which an asset, for example, falls. As the values increase, the ranges get broader. To calculate net worth, shown here, CRP added together the lawmaker's range of assets and then subtracted their range of liabilities. CRP then calculated the midpoint of the resulting range and used this figure to rank the filers according to their median net worth.

Consequently, I decided to find out if Jewish members of Congress tended to be richer on the average than other members of Congress. Based on my previous list of Jews in Congress, I present the list below, arranged in rank order of their median net worth. Note that this does not imply that they accumulated their net worth while in Congress; in most cases, they brought it with them.

Top COUNTERFEITERS Are Richest, Most Powerful: Gosh, That's So Earth-Shattering
(Apollonian, 8 Nov 09)

Yes AA, Jews are at "top of heap" for political power and influence which is reflected by their being topmost criminal gang, controlling everything else, beginning of course, w. crucial, crux COUNTERFEITING SCAM, the US Federal Reserve Bank (Fed)--see,, and for expo/ref. notes at least 20 of 25 of top billionaires in NYC are Jews. "Forty-five percent of the top 40 of the Forbes 400 richest Americans are Jewish," according to

Everyone else, all the gentiles, rather seem to prefer fighting one another to see who is more '"moral" than thou,' while Jews remain connected w. one another, "thick as thieves."

Jews are rich and powerful, but gentiles are MORAL--isn't that comforting?

And so I note ur final sentence for ur blog, "Finding: 21 of the 31 Jewish representatives are in the top half of the House in net worth. Overall, Jews in Congress tend to be richer than other members of Congress." And I must observe, AA, gosh, but ur "finding" is positively earth-shattering. Is there some pt. u were trying to make? Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

I hear wealth envy. And what is it Apolo that you are doing to acquire wealth? I can assure you riding your bike to the library to use the computer isn't going to do it for you. Sapping off society with your disability check that you don't even need won't either.

"Hoochie" Jew: So Desperate--To Fooling Himself
(Apollonian, 9 Nov 09)

"Hoochie" the Jew, u're truly brilliant, an outstanding example of a dumb Jew, yet one who's still worth observing for ur psychopathic persistence borne of ur typical Jew's psychotic obsession, so desperate to pretend u're "white," u stinking piece of Jew putridity.

It's incredible to imagine u really think u impress ANYONE that u are, or even could be, "white," u amazing piece-of-shit-that-stinks. For u aren't--and COULDN'T BE--white or Christian, not in the slightest. For u're simply a typical Jew psychopath, totally obsessed, who pretends, like typical Jew, to psychologize, thus psyching the goyim.

U haven't the slightest sense of Christianity, and none of ur text demonstrates any such Christian feel for truth or honesty, everything working for ur obsession for coloring the truth and concocting ur own reality by means of ur brainless lying and posturing.

U're only unusual for Jews in that u evidently think u can pass for "white"--which u can only do with stupid people--like urself. For ur thought-process is PURE JEW--u insist u can fake and bullshit and create a phony reality--which can only work with thoroughly stupid goyim, fooling only urself in the end.

I like how u so often pretend to being "on attack"--like u kikes think u have us gentiles on defensive--which u actually do, in all truth. Still, it's interesting to see a really stupid Jew like urself "pushing it," as u do so often and so pathetically.

And u, "Hoochie" the Jew, are the current blessing and revelation of WhiteReference, un-questionably--a real-life kike in-action, pretending u're sowing confusion among the goyim. WhiteReference might be mere mediocre blog without a prize Jew psychopathic troll like u.

U've actually become quite a character by now, for over a year on WhiteReference--having nothing substantial to say--not even merest pretense anymore, merely repeating, repeating for ur anti-nigger exhortation--at same time as idiotically (now) insisting u know NOTHING about Jews and Talmud, etc.

Otherwise, get it straight, dumb-ass kike: I'm not trying to "acquire wealth"--it isn't possible under present war-time circumstances, u brainless piece-of-shit. I'm simply trying to exterminate Jews like u, scummy filth.

CONCLUSION: And I consider this Jew extermination will take place as we soldiers, like scientists, observe the enemy, like u, though we understand u're not too smart. Still u're typical for kike's general obsession and pathology, specifically then applied to ur insistence u can bullshit the goyim, as u think u're doing here, trying to "pass" as "white"--like some stupid nigger, I imagine. As so often for Jew puke, u basically only fool urself. Any (real) whites who let themselves be fooled by stupid kike like u deserves what they get. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

"""Otherwise, get it straight, dumb-ass kike: I'm not trying to "acquire wealth"--it isn't possible under present war-time circumstances..."""

More of the same dribble from you nigger boy.

And you obviously have no idea what you are talking about again. I have "acquired more wealth" over the present war-time circumstances than I ever have in my life. Those who are intelligent find ways to take advantage of the present economic conditions, whether good or bad.

Maybe one day you will spend some productive time in that library and do some research on economics, specifically what businesses thrive and fail during various economic conditions. History always repeats itself, and once I realized that my life changed.

I used to have problems, as you obviously do, trying to figure out how the hell I will ever get ahead. No matter what I did, still broke. And when I taught myself various aspects of economics and about money and leveraging it, my life changed dramatically.

And once I could see that what I was doing was working, I was excited about it, and it gave me intense levels of drive to focus on getting myself economically in the top 10% of society.

If you only put a small percentage of your anti Jew energy and or nigger love into what I said, you would be changed forever.

And by the way, wealth DOES bring happiness. The only people who says it doesn't are those who don't have it.

"Hoochie" Jew Gloats Like Typical Jew
(Apollonian, 10 Nov 09)

Hey "Hooch" Jew, now that u're doing so well in this economy whence over 20% are un-employed, are u connected w. Goldman-Sachs? Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian

Hooch said...

I am connected with many banks dipshit. I pay the "Jew" interest to give me money to buy houses. One who pays the so called "Jew" controllers of the world end up winning.

But not Goldman-Sachs as far as I know.
