Roll Call: The "50 Richest" US legislators

Not that the list is in any way accurate, mind you. Wisconsin's Senator Herb Kohl is a centimillionaire, but comes in at #49, poking along with a measly $5.49 million.

I wonder how many of these 50 seek federal policies which would make it less difficult for others to create great wealth, how many seek policies which preserve their own wealth at the expense of other, more innovative, people, and how many are guilt ridden enough to want policies which make it harder for others to create great wealth.

Now that would be an interesting list.
