These are the richest people that govern and rule America. They are the leaders who fight for American’s rights. Some Americans see them as heroes, while others may view them as opponents and foe. Nevertheless, they are America’s politicians who have very big bank accounts.
Rick Scott is Worth a Lot
Who is Rick Scott? He is The Governor of Florida who has a net worth of $83 million. Rick is a Republican and is originally from Illinois. He studied and obtained numerous qualifications from many universities including the University of Missouri and Kansas City. Besides being a politician, Rick is also the co-founder of the biggest private for-profit health care corporation in the USA.
Clinton’s Big Bills
Former president of the United States, Bill Clinton, has a net worth of $98 million, is a member of the Democratic Party, and is a graduate of Yale Law School. Clinton owns two mansions, in Washington DC, and in New Castle NY.
The Secretary of State
John Kerry, the current Secretary of State, is a Yale University graduate. He won combat awards for serving in Vietnam, but later declared that he was against the American involvement in Vietnam. His net worth is $193 million.
We all know who Mitt Romney is, but how much is he worth? This Republican has a net worth of $255 million. He owns shares in some very powerful companies.
Al Gore has it All
Al Gore, former Senator from Tennessee, and former Vice President of the USA, is worth $300 million. A mere 12 years ago when he was running for president, he only had a net worth of $2 million. Some very smart investing must have taken place.
Michael McCaul’s Millions
Michael McCaul, the Republican and the Chairman of House Homeland Security Committee, has a net worth of $305 million. 10 years ago, Michael’s net worth was about $12 million. Most of the sudden increase in his wealth was due to monetary transfers from his wife’s side of the family.
Corzine’s Bad Reputation
Jon Corzine of the Democratic Party and former Senator of New Jersey, is worth $375 million. Corzine was the CEO of MF Global. In 2011, MF Global went bankrupt, and Corzine was sued for the misuse of customer money. His wealth is allegedly decreasing at a rapid rate... along with his reputation!
The Terminator’s Term as Governor
Arnold Schwarzenegger may have enjoyed the attention when he replaced acting for governing, but he certainly didn’t enjoy the salary drop. When he served as Governor of California in 2003, his annual salary was $175,000. Quite a decrease from what he was used to getting paid as an actor. Arnold has a net worth of $400 million.
Darrell Issa, He Is A Self Made Millionaire
The Republican, Darrell Issa, is the U.S Representative for California 49th congressional district. He has a net worth of $450 million and is a self made millionaire.
The Mayor of New York
Michael Bloomberg , the Mayor of New York City, is worth $33 billion. He is also the 7th richest man in the USA and the 16th richest person in the world. Bloomberg owns six estates, including a home in Stokes Bay worth $10,5 million, and a $20 million home in Ballyshear which boasts 11 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. He also owns a jet, an Audi R8, and a Chevrolet Suburban.
These Politicians have some serious money. Do you think rich politicians do a better job at ruling America?
