Noted. What an interesting little article that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that those in DC are indeed living in a super bubble....far away from the rest of us. Gingrey's net worth is somewhere between $3 Mil. and $7.6 Mil. and he's crying that he's not making $500,000 a yr?! Well, I'll bet that he voted against SNAP today in Congress, too....last I looked ALL House Reps. voted against it. My comment will end, because the only thing in my brain is a bunch of expletives.

Let him come visit me for a while...he'll learn very quickly how to live on under $10K.

Poor baby! Maybe he should do the right thing and resign.

Take it away from him then. Sick of these useless bozos masquerading as political representatives. They are freeloading moochers.
