Interesting graph

From InstaPundit, of course.

“The principal difficulty lies, and the greatest care should be employed in constituting this Representative Assembly. It should be in miniature, an exact portrait of the people at large. It should think, feel, reason, and act like them.” — John Adams

  1. What does the pie chart look like for the senate?

    If you want Congress to be representative of the populace then 47% of them would have to be “dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. ” For Congress 47% is way too low a percentage.

    I’d guess 75-25, at least. If Inagua had his way, both chambers would be 100%.

    Congress is made up of the House and Senate. Forty-seven percent of the House Reps. are millionaires, fifty-six percent of the Senators are. Dianne Feinstein has a net worth of seventy million; Nancy Pelosi has a net worth of thirty-five and a half million. Both made their millions by investing their discretionary income wisely. The current House and Senate income is $174,000 a year and members are free to work without pay. The way things are now, the fact that anyone has to pay income tax is meaningless since the Fed creates money out of thin air, and is just an excercise in subjugation.

    1% legislating (or not) for everyone else….what does Lord Acton say again?

    Was no more representative of the country at large in 1790 than it is now.
