Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (Bill)
Net Worth (2009)
|Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT)||$13,013 to $204,000|
|Sen. John Kerry (D-MA)||$182,755,534 to $294,869,059|
|Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA)||$449,017 to $1,185,000|
Given the recent credit-rating downgrade, I am not sure how that fact will affect this deficit panel. I am unsure whether wealthy politically powerful and connected people make these decisions without any citizen’s input is a good idea, especially when it comes to program cuts.
