    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The Hill, a political newspaper, unveiled its annual list of the 50 richest lawmakers on Tuesday. Rep. Michael McCaul, a Republican from Texas, held on to the top slot with a cool $290.5 million.
    "McCaul remains in the stratosphere of the very richest members of Congress," said The Hill, noting that his wealth "stems from several family trusts," and that his father Lowry Mays founded Clear Channel Communications. His value actually rose by $3 million in 2011, the time period covered in the list.

    Look at em,,Theyre mostly democrats. And the media never mentioned about Kerrys wealth when he ran for President. But they mentioned how Mitt Romney is wealthy and greedy.

    That's why they refer to these things as "Big Lies"
    Too bad Teddy Kennedy is off talking now to the women he killed and not available to talk about the terrible rich people...

    More likely democrats are astounding HYPOCRITES.
    And--consummate LIARS.
    As they have always been since the 1950's.

    Gotta love when liberals come on the board and spout ridiculous statements parroted directly from the delusional world of the DNC and do not offer any fact or information to back up the accusations.

    Liberals ...... Go Figure!

    Obama's handlers and puppet-masters have studied these tactics very carefully--
    it shows up all through their attempted coup d' etat.

    Democrats put their money in the freezer. They wrap them in tin foil.
