    If she has a "good money manager" that was able to hustle her $15 million last year, she needs to consider starting a monthly Financial Newsletter. Folks would subscribe to savvy advice like that.

    Can we now expect her to start hiring some unemployed workers?

    Re: Pelosi's Net Worth Rises 62 Percent

    It always baffles me how congress critters can create so much wealth while doing the people's business and wasting so much of our money. What if we taxed 100% of every congress critters wealth for the time they where in office and saw windfall profits like NP? I wonder how much of the debt we could pay? 1% maybe?

    Re: Pelosi's Net Worth Rises 62 Percent

    Pelosi saw her wealth rise due to some stock gains and real estate investments made by her husband, Paul.

    Apple stock owned by Pelosi's spouse rose from at least $500,000 in 2009 to $1 million in 2010. The minority leader's husband also took a bigger stake in Matthews International Capital Management — worth at least $5 million last year, compared to $1 million in 2009 — and his investment in some undeveloped residential real estate in Sacramento, Calif., jumped to at least $5 million in value.

    Paul Pelosi also has sizable assets in the United Football League, including $1 million in a partnership interest in a Jacksonville, Fla., franchise and $5 million in a partnership interest for the Sacramento Lions.

    Why are you complaining again? Its not like she stole this money from tax payers.

    I agree that members of congress shouldn't have really high benefits or be paid more than whats needed to sustain them. I think people like her should donate most, if not their entire congressional pay check, to some sort of charity.

    Re: Pelosi's Net Worth Rises 62 Percent

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) saw her net worth rise 62 percent last year, cementing her status as one of the wealthiest members of Congress.
    Pelosi was worth at least $35.2 million in the 2010 calendar year, according to a financial disclosure report released Wednesday. She reported a minimum of $43.4 million in assets and about $8.2 milion in liabilities.
    For 2009, Pelosi reported a minimum net worth of $21.7 million.
    That is why she can't relate to normal people. She is abnormal in every way.

    Wow, she must be investing BIG OIL. And she's probably a BIG OIL hater too.
