Montana Rep Denny Rehberg Is "Cash Poor" And "Struggling" With A Net Worth Of $31M

From the GOP-Is-Out-Of-Touch-With-Real-America Department: more proof that the Republicans cannot comprehend what life is like for most Americans, Montana Republican Congressman Denny Rehberg told a town hall audience that he feels their pain, because he is "cash poor" and "struggling" as a small businessman, just like they are.


While Rehberg calls himself poor and complains that he’s struggling, the fact is that he is, as of 2009 records, the 14th richest member of the House of Representatives. estimates that his average net worth in 2009 was $31 million. If he’s struggling on that, one has to wonder if he’s really a good arbiter of what’s fair for Main Street America.

No kidding. A net worth of $31 million? No wonder he thinks Medicare is unnecessary.
