Half in Congress are Millionaires

A new study finds that of 535 members of Congress, nearly half of them -- 261 -- are millionaires. And of these congressional millionaires, 55 have an average calculated wealth in 2009 of $10 million or more, with eight in the $100 million-plus range.

The median wealth of a U.S. House member was $765,010 last year and the median wealth of a U.S. Senator was $2.38 million.
