CHANGE: Congress is getting richer.

The median net worth of lawmakers was just over $1 million in 2013, or 18 times the wealth of the typical American household, according to new research released Monday by the Center for Responsive Politics.

And while Americans’ median wealth is down 43% since 2007, Congress members’ net worth has jumped 28%.

I’ve long thought that elected federal officials should be required to place their assets in a blind trust.
