IT’S SO EASY
One reason is that Congresscritter Schifforbrains has never worked a day in his life in the real world – never had any private sector job, never had a business, ever in his life.
He went directly from law school to prosecutor for the US Attorney’s office in Los Angeles, then California state senate in 96, then Congress in 2001 where he’s been there ever since. Oh yes, his Wikepedia entry says his net worth is $1.7million. Wonder how he did that.
