Tasked with representing the American people -- the common man -- the United States Congress seems closer to Wall Street than Main Street. The median net worth of American families hovers around $120,000 compared to $912,000 for members of Congress. The 10 wealthiest members of Congress have a combined net worth of approximately $2.8 billion.
