    And yet they "care" about the poor man. I wonder how many poor people they are willing to let live in one the multiple spare rooms in their homes.

    Would it be better to elect individuals of low achievement to lead our country?

    Whatever you do, don't merge these 2 threads- we'd have 474 millionaire congressmen.

    Of course not. But it does bring home the point that you usually have to have a lot of money to run for Congress. It also proves once again that the Democrat Party is the party of the rich.
