Congress: Wealth AND Empathy?

This chart offers a look at the 2012 (and things have only gone up from there) net worth of the 25 richest members of the US House of Representatives!

These are the very people who were sent to Washington to represent the interests of the hard working American businesspeople, workers and entrepreneurs everywhere!

When they stand before the cameras and tell us that they feel the pain of the people on Main Street, can that really be true?

In other words when many Americans are suffering through a slow economic recovery where most of the financial gains achieved have been through financial assets (aka stock market), can these representatives who are about to go off on a five week vacation truly have empathy for the trials and tribulations of the average working man?
