Is there a web site you can go too that tells you how much a politician was worth when they went into office and how much they are worth now?

Most of them are millionaires, some are billionaires. Standard members of Congress "earn" $174,000 a year, plus expenses and lifetime pension. Only Congressmen Ron Paul and Howard Coble, and Senator Rand Paul waives their compensation.

Rep. Hal Rogers, Chairman of House Appropriations Committee is not only one rich son of a gun, but expects his constituents to pay for his lifestyle. If you think politicians care about you, then you're more of a fool than anyone has ever let you know.

I say, repeal the Compensation Claus of the U.S. Constitution.

I'm fairly certain they do not pay for anything at all out of their own pocket. Nothing. We cover it all. Babysitters, the best healthcare in the world. Even transportation to vacation and the vacation itself and any body guard or maid or hairdresser or other thing they want. Least that's what I heard.
