Forbes. Gore was a politicians from 1977 to 2001 and has used promotion of "green energy" to build his fortune exponentially. Isn't it interesting that the government of which he was a part was so quick to invest in the greenies. Taxpayers ended up holding the bag for the $500 million dollar loan to Solyndra. It's so easy to spend other people's money! As for Gore, he raked money in hand over fist peddling green energy and global warming hysteria hyped by both government and media.
Nancy Pelosi' daddy was the son of Italian immigrants who got into politics early on after working as an insurance broker. Nancy didn't run until after her children were grown. Poor thing. She's only worth $35 million, but has had a big boost in recent years. Must be her charming personality.
Bill and Hillary Clinton are particularly interesting since they came from relatively humble backgrounds although Hillary's dad did well in the textile industry. The Clinton's made most of their substantial fortune ($38 million) after Bill's term as president peddling books and doing speaking engagement, although Hillary made a small fortune from shady transactions in cattle futures when Bill was Attorney General of Arkansas.
Now I don't begrudge rich folk their money whatever their party. But Democrats invariably attack conservatives for having money while they make the average taxpayer a whole lot poorer so they can give other people's money away buying votes and influence. The cost of the Obamacare "train wreck" on the middle class is just starting to be exposed. But these big spending hypocrites peddle themselves as altruistic even when their personal history of charitable giving is almost nil.
Think of the Founders of this country, many of whom died broke because they really did pledge their "fortunes" to the cause of freedom. How likely are we to find that among today's politicians?
