    Here in this area, we have/have had representatives like Marcia Fudge, Tim Ryan, Marcy Kaptur and Dennis Kucinich who are not wealthy, and who lived on their congressional salaries (At one point, Dennis slept in his office to save money).

    On the other hand, we have Teabaggin' Jim Renacci, who is among the wealthiest members of Congress. And the wealthiest member of Congress, who attended and dropped out of the high school up the street from me in my Cleveland suburb, is Darrell Issa.

    The most conservative tend to be very wealthy.  It's often (although not always) the progressives who are worth less. The idea that's been floated that members of Congress should not be paid or should be paid part-time wages would guarantee a wealth-favoring aristocracy in D.C.

    Jon Husted is a dick.
