Would you like to see a list of all members of congress and presidents and vice president's net worth before and after assuming office?
Possibly at regular intervals. Maybe yearly or every six moths.
LBJ was elected to Congress as a dirt-poor teacher, during the Depression, from west Texas. He left the White House worth over 20 million dollars (in 1969 dollars). And no, it wasn’t Lady Bird’s family’s money.
Yes, a list of the net worth of all Presidents, before and after their time in office, would be... informative.
In theory, yes, but I wouldn't trust the numbers that came out anyway. They would just hide assets.
Yes, and I'm surprised more attention isn't given to how many legislators get rich while in office. It might shed some light on why they act the way they do.
Pelosi just for starters.
THE community agitator!
I wonder what all these politicians have in common 🤔
I would love to see one and a breakdown of wealth along party lines.
Why should that matter?
Because they use their positions to make themselves wealthy by selling out the people they are supposed to be representing?
Because we should know where their wealth is coming from while in office.
Does this apply to all representatives?
