Congressmen net worth first appeared on FloatingPath
A trendy topic this week has been an analysis by OpenSecrets that revealed that for the first time ever, a majority of the members of the U.S. Congress are millionaires.
Vizual Statistix took that data and created an excellent heatmap showing the net worth of every individual currently serving in the House or the Senate.
The median net worth of the whole congress is $1.01 million. The Senate is significantly more wealthy with a median net worth of $2.79 million compared to only $0.90 million in the House.
Republican representatives are far wealthier in the Senate than their Democratic counterparts, but in the House both parties have similar wealth.
