funny, you dems still think the rich are republicans
More Democrats than Republicans Sit on 10 Richest Members of Congress List. While Republicans often get the reputation for being "the party of the rich," seven of the 10 richest members of Congress are Democrats, according to the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP).
According to OpenSecrets.org, from 1989 to 2014 rich donors gave Democrats $1.15 billion -- $416 million more than the $736 million given to the GOP. Among the top 10 donors to both parties, Democrat supporters outspent Republican supporters 2-to-1.
Indeed, a recent book, "The New Leviathan," says donations to Democrats outstrip those to Republicans 7-to-1. How can this be? Democrat support soars when you include unions, universities, superPACs, nonprofits, left-wing interest groups, and -- ready for this? -- Wall Street (which overwhelmingly favors Democrats).
