"The Hill’s 50 Wealthiest Lawmakers list ranks the richest members of Congress. For the second year in a row, Texas Republican Representative Michael McCaul edges out Democratic Massachusetts Senator John Kerry as the wealthiest lawmaker in Washington. Although Republicans outnumber Democrats on The Hill’s 50 Wealthiest Lawmakers list, GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan does not even come close to being ranked on the richest members of Congress list. According to The Hill, Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan has a net worth of $2.2 million, a “modest sum” for any Congressional member from either side of the aisle."
