Are our representatives getting richer while we get poorer?

I’m going to post this that Sadie sent along, but I have grave doubts about its accuracy.  My Congerssman, Pete Stark, (shudder) supposedly had a net worth of negative nearly $10 million in 2004 after 20 years or so in Congress??  Somehow I doubt that.  And then somehow figured it out and made $14 million net in the next four years?  Not likely.  Anyway, for what it’s worth:


“Many have had the sneaking suspicion that our elected “leaders” in Congress are not going to Washington D.C. to represent us but for their own personal gain. This video may just validate that assessment!”
