I read Frank Rich's article on the Republican billionaires. I don't read Mr. Rich, so I don't know his style. My observations come from this article (billionaires controlling the tea party) alone. Overall it was a good article, but it was written as if he was an advocate. It was written as though he was an insider, and he glossed over facts that we, who can't research, don't know about. The result was a cliche ridden piece which was hard to follow. I'm sorry about that because it was an article that was trying to convey something we should know.

He only needed to say one thing that would have educated us. And then prove it. The rich are financing our politicions. Whether Democrat, Republican or Independent.

Most are lawyers and spend many times what the office pays.

I don't know the answer.

Rich is clearly envious. The tide is turning. Meanwhile, Obama hasn't exactly suffered from a dearth of billionaire donors.

Democrat Party billionaires who have redistributed some of their wealth to Obama:
....Arthur Blank
....Warren Buffett
....Barry Diller
....Michael Eisner
....David Geffen
....Charles Gifford
....Jeffrey Katzenberg
....Norman Lear
....Penny Pritzker
....Goerge Soros
....Steven Spielberg
....Steve Tisch
....and, Oprah Winfrey.

Rich liberals, part 2: The HIll's latest rankings of lawmakers' wealth.

"Twenty-seven Democrats along with 23 Republicans make up the 50 richest in Congress.

"Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) tops the list for the second year in a row. His minimum net worth was $188.6 million at the end of 2009, up by more than $20 million from 2008, according to his financial disclosure form....

"The bulk of Kerry’s wealth is credited to his spouse, Teresa Heinz Kerry, who inherited hundreds of millions of dollars after her late husband, the ketchup heir Sen. John Heinz (R-Pa.), died in a plane crash in 1991."
