How Much is Congress Worth?

Every government textbook I have used mentions the qualities of Congress and how the institution does not accurately reflect the demographics of the US.  Here is an amazing study of the current Congress from the WashPost and how they did financially during the recent recession. Not surprisingly Republicans are better off than Dems and as a group they are better off than the rest of us and did better during the downturn of the economy.  There is a lot more to see if you go to the link.
