The Richest Members Congress

Recently, the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) analyzed the financial assets of US lawmakers based on required annual disclosures, and found that there are 237 millionaires in the US Congress.

The CRP determines estimated net worth based on some 40 asset and liability categories. Each has a value range, such as $5 million to $25 million.

Assets, for instance, include non-government income, asset transactions, spouse's income, gifts and more. Listing of Non-income generating property (including a primary residence) is not required under disclosure rules. Assets listed were held by members of Congress in 2008.
