Factoids of the day:

1.  44% of Congressmen are millionaires. 

2. Consistent with the “limousine liberals” stereotype, eight out of the ten richest are Democrats.

I wonder how much of this can be explained by the vast overrepresentation of lawyers in politics?

Correction: I initially assumed that these figures were only for the House.  The true fraction is 237/535=44%, not 237/435=54%.
