    Try this thought experiment. Imagine that someone grows up in poverty, works his way through law school by holding the night shift as a Capitol Hill policeman, and spends all but two years of his career as a public servant. Now imagine that this person’s current salary — and he’s at the top of his game — is $193,400. You probably wouldn’t expect him to have millions in stocks, bonds, and real estate.

    But, surprise, he does, if he’s our Senate majority leader, whose net worth is between 3 and 10 million dollars, according to OpenSecrets.org.


    Read the rest of the story to understand how Reid used his office to make a fortune.

    The power of compartmentalization.
     
  7. If I was a politician I would use my contacts and legal inside info to become a rich fuck.
    Just like Randy " baby killer " Neugebauer, my representative who has increased his net worth by at least 5 million $ since leaving the business world and entering congress in 2003.

    It's like placing a plate of food in front of a starving man. Let's eat!

    I'm for term limits and a rule that says if you are in Congress, Senate or President, your net worth cannot increase by more than inflation or you write a check to the Treasury for the difference.

    I suppose they would just get around that by making their children rich which some have done already.

    I guess being in the club of 537 if you are not already dishonest you soon will be.

    To paraphrase again: It's easier for a Camel to pass through the eye of a needle than it is for a politician to enter the Kingdom of God.

    How did Harry Reid get so rich?

    Word on the street is that he hasn't paid taxes in the last 10 years.
