    Pelosi's wealth grows by 62 percent

    Link

    By Kevin Bogardus - 06/15/11 12:46 PM ET
    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.

    I think if your income is over $1 million while you're serving in congress that you should not be paid for your service in congress. Maybe we'd pull in people who actually give a damn.

    We have a major recession, and her wealth goes up how much? Say it with me? 62%

    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.

    How dare they invest their money! Rabble rabble rabble!

    Interesting proposition.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Iirc, we're not still in a recession. Technically, this is what's called a crappy economy.

    Profits have been up for businesses for a while.
    I may be wrong.

    Yes, how dare the anti-capitalism hypocrites invest their money. You're exactly right. How dare the big government tax and spenders (of other people's money) make net worth gains of 62% during a recession.
