To say that I'm enjoying a millionaire's lifestyle - well, I can tell you, I guess a millionaire's income doesn't go very far these days.
-- Ed Pastor (D-AZ), who is among 250 members of Congress with a net worth of $1 million or more, New York Times, 27 December 2012
From the article: While the median net worth of members of Congress jumped 15 percent from 2004 to 2010, the net worth of the richest 10 percent of Americans remained essentially flat. For all Americans, median net worth dropped 8 percent, based on inflation-adjusted data from Moody's Analytics.
Good article, particularly if you like numbers.
