There are more rich Democrats in Congress than Republicans

It might interest your correspondent Doug Hicks to know that according to Roll Call, eight of the top dozen wealthiest members of Congress are Democrats, not Republicans.  Democrat activist (once convicted of insider-trading) George Soros is #22 on Forbes’ list of the wealthiest men in America.  Joined-at-the-hip-Obama-twin Warren Buffett is #3.  Karl Rove doesn’t even appear in the top 100.  I couldn’t find anything on Grover Norquist, but I think he’s more of a scary boogeyman for liberals because of what he thinks, not how much money he has.  Oh, I know, Mr Hicks will say it all matters on how much money they control behind the scenes, but the same is true of Buffett, Soros, et al. Only they’re even more secretive.  Let’s just say that the Republicans do not have any corner on the nation’s wealth, despite what Mr Hicks thinks.
