Ted Rall for August 24, 2011
Salary, U.S. Senator: $174,000 Median Net Worth: $14,000,000 Man: I'm a U.S. Senator but, just like you, I worry about paying the bills at the end of the month. Like, my At&T bill is $82.13. I have to work 12 minutes to pay that! Or take it out of savings. Do you have any idea how many hours I have to clock to pay an average mortgage? I slave a whole day from 9 AM to 11:30 AM to make my nut! Like many others, I've even been reduced to the underground economy.
