Dems Understand the Poor, Nancy Pelosi Owns a Vineyard!

She is the fourth-richest Californian in Congress.

Nancy Pelosi has a minimum net worth of $29.35 million according to Roll Call. Most of this wealth is attributable to her husband, Paul, and his investments in Apple, Comcast, Facebook, and Walt Disney stocks. But it is also a result of their real estate investments around their home state of California.

And though she is not as rich as her pal Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who broke the top-ten with a net worth of $52.78 million, Pelosi can boast as being the fourth-richest Californian in Congress.

Neighbors of the Pelosis know when the power couple is home at their Northern California estate when they see the black (non-environmentally-friendly) SUVs circling the property. One neighbor told the LA Times that it looks like "planes gathering over O'Hare Airport."

Proving that Democrats really do understand the plight of the poor, the Pelosis also enjoy their $5 million vineyard attached to their sprawling villa. 

But surely as Pelosi continues to damn the nation's 1%-ers for earning too much money, she isn't talking about herself. No! She means Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), who tops Roll Call's list for the third year in a row for his net worth of a whopping $245.65 million!

It just makes you feel so bad for DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz who is way down the list at number 537, who though she owns two homes, is one of the "poorest" members with  -$900,000 net worth.
