Winning a coveted ‘public servant’ office makes them multi-millionaires – they are in the millionaire’s club. Here are a few examples:
Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi: net worth = $120,000,000, annual income = $234,000, $24,000 refrigerator and all the gourmet ice cream she can eat. Got her hair done at a salon and was captured on camera in the salon without a mask, even though salons were closed to the public in her state of California and masks were mandatory.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo: net worth = ~$6,000,000. Annual income increases to $250,000/year in 2021. He received a $25,000 increase to $225,000 in 2020, the year of the pandemic, and will receive another $25,000 at which time his state has a significant budget deficit of $63,000,000,000. Meanwhile, he has written a book about how well he handled the pandemic, despite one of the highest death rates and death tolls in the nation, and despite legal action against him for his handling of elderly in nursing homes which led to thousands of unnecessary deaths.
Former President Barack Obama: net worth = $70,000,000, annual salary is $400,000. Filthy rich.
Susan Rice, United States National Security Advisor under President Barack Obama: net worth = $50,000,000. Most of her wealth was gained while she was ‘serving’ the American people, by investing in oil, despite her commitment to ‘green’ causes. Hypocrite, got rich while telling people to “do as I say, not as I do.”
Former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton: Combined with President Bill Clinton, net worth = $120,000,000. In 2014 she said, “We came out of the White House (in 2001) not only dead broke, but in debt. We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education. You know, it was not easy.” LOL: not at all easy with only $1/4-million for each speaking engagement.
Former Vice President, Al Gore: After cashing in on the award-winning “An Inconvenient Truth,” investing heavily in stocks, and commanding $175,000 per speaking engagement, VP Gore has conveniently ratcheted up his net worth to $300,000,000 and counting. Has spent years lecturing people on global warming and fossil fuels, but his own carbon footprint with huge mansion and private jets, exceeds, by a long shot, that of the average American.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: After less than 2 years in office, the 30-year old, former barista has already amassed $100,000 in net worth. When she filed to run for office she was making $26,000/year, had an estimated $15,000 cash savings, and $50,000 in tuition debt. Now she makes $174,000/year, plus $3,000 living expenses, and full health coverage and retirement benefits, paid for by your tax dollars. The average wage for baristas in the US is $11.55/hour + $17.00 in tips/day = (if they work full time [8 hrs/day], take no days off, and take no holidays) $28,444/year.
Mayor of NY, Bill de Blasio: Net worth is $1,500,000 with an annual salary of $254,000 in 2018. It is estimated that his wife makes $1,100,000 annually, a salary de Blasio has had to publicly defend. He is also the lockdown king of NYC, and openly breaks the rules he imposes on his citizens.
California Governor Gavin Newsom: Net worth is $22,000,000 with an annual salary of $201,680. Newsom has amassed a substantial fortune, but still finds time to stand in the middle of a burning forest and laugh for the TV cameras about being able to blame it on climate change. Newsom has recently barred Californians from coming together for the Thanksgiving holiday – maybe he just doesn’t want to have to see his own family – or maybe he’ll have a traditional Thanksgiving while his constituents suffer.
Senator Dianne Feinstein: Net worth is $80,000,000. One of the oldest serving legislators, Feinstein is 87 years old (as of October 2020). A long history of political corruption, working to line her pockets and not giving two-shakes about the American people.
