House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) saw her net worth rise 62 percent last year, cementing her status as one of the wealthiest members of Congress.

Pelosi was worth at least $35.2 million in the 2010 calendar year, according to a financial disclosure report released Wednesday. She reported a minimum of $43.4 million in assets and about $8.2 milion in liabilities.

For 2009, Pelosi reported a minimum net worth of $21.7 million.


We the people actually allow these politicians to make decisions for US !

They make decisions for "US" in THEIR best interests.

They say "spend spend spend !" and yet they "keep keep keep" for themselves.

All while "we the people" pay ! pay ! pay !

obnoxious i say !

No wonder She said "let's pass the bill so we can see what's in it !"


as if She didn't already know !

her staff reads and reports every word to Her......but that's not WE are supposed to believe !

I agree that people with millions of dollars should be taxed way more than people who can barely get by with their paycheck, but 90% is a little severe.

How much money do you donate to charity? I don't donate any...

Nancy Pelosi ..

www.opensecrets.org...

Net Worth in 2009 as disclosed by her: Minimum -7.3 million (negative) Maximum: 124.2 million
Average net worth 58 million.

Most politicians report closer to their "real" net worth being the maximum and the "minimum" what they claim on their taxes.


Some really interesting numbers......

Pete Stark (D-Calif)
Minimum: $-24,244,990
Average: $-11,542,496
Maximum: $1,159,997

That dudes got some serious financial dysfunction ..

Or he's a good liar?

I was very happy with her appointment just because she was a woman, but then reality set in and I forgot that all politicians are nothing but political whores and they serve only the pimps in corporate America.

Actually, it was from stock gains and real estate investments her husband made.



Apple stock owned by Pelosi's spouse rose from at least $500,000 in 2009 to $1 million in 2010. The minority leader's husband also took a bigger stake in Matthews International Capital Management — worth at least $5 million last year, compared to $1 million in 2009 — and his investment in some undeveloped residential real estate in Sacramento, Calif., jumped to at least $5 million in value.

Paul Pelosi also has sizable assets in the United Football League, including $1 million in a partnership interest in a Jacksonville, Fla., franchise and $5 million in a partnership interest for the Sacramento Lions.


But the twist on this is not surprising. Rich people are fine, as long as they're not Democrats... :shk:

Sure her husband got her inside trading from his pimps after all they knew that his wife will be there in position of power to bail them out in an economic down turn.

Wake up my friend politics in America are not what you think, political parties are nothing but to confuse the trusting voter.

If people have not learned by now who rules this nation, then they are nothing but lost case amid a sea.

According the report, many top leaders/career politicians had quite the banner year in 2010. Pelosi's increase is certainly the most notable. Of course she will attempt to attribute the increase to her husbands investments and financial aptitude. How he could make money on real estate holdings in California is very interesting. The holdings are only as valuable as "someone" is willing to pay for them. Real estate deals are a great format to pay someone back on the sly. How about all of the Californians who are under water in their personal real estate holdings??

Given Pelosi's career, slant toward the shallow end of the ethics pool and her deeply rooted connections, I would love to dig a little deeper into her financial situation and relationships.

She needs to explain this to her constituents and to her supporters in general. You know, the same people who demonize the wealthy and want to lynch big business and banksters. Obama likes to call them "Fat Cats"

Despite Pelosi's diminutive size, she certainly fits the description of a Fat Cat.

You don't have to dig muc to find out their links to the big bankers in the nations, just look at the fat cats in congress that belong to the finance committee, they are all suckers to big banks.

But darn you can not even hint the connection without people raising their arms to find excuses for this political whores.

Paul Pelosi's involvement in the UFL is quite interesting. First of all, there are only 5 teams in the league. Second, it is looking pretty good that the NFL will not be playing in the coming season. Third, that sets up the UFL to fill in the massive vacuum created by the absence of the NFL. Thus, the UFL and its investors are poised to rake in big bucks!! Cancel out the NFL in the Bay Area in general and you are left with the Sacremento Lions to fill the void and to rake int the revenue.

Interesting isn't it?? Nancy had better watch her steps and cover her tracks.

They look like legal investments to me, I guess i'm missing the point. Are you against her because of her wealth or her policies?

More on Pelosi and the UFL


Bill Hambrecht, who founded two high-tech investment banks that helped take Silicon Valley companies public, said he never contributed to politics until he was inspired by Pelosi after meeting her in the early 1970s.

Bill and Sally Hambrecht and their five children eventually became close friends of the Pelosis and their five children, scheduling trips to their ski condos in Tahoe together.

Before meeting Pelosi, "I had a political philosophy, but I was never involved in politics,'' said Bill Hambrecht, who said he was deeply moved by Pelosi's conviction that government could improve the world. "At the core of Nancy's being is a belief in the political system."

That belief inspired Hambrecht, he said. In 2001, Mother Jones magazine ranked him as the nation's 64th largest political contributor. Since then he has contributed $38,000 to Pelosi and a total of nearly $242,000 to Democratic causes.


Fantastic article on Pelosi's connections and skills. It is from 2006!! which makes it even more interesting when you consider her consistent rise to power and wealth
www.sfgate.com.../c/a/2006/04/03/MNGN8I2DKT1.DTL&ao=3

Who is Bill Hambrecht you ask? He is certainly close to the Pelosi Family eh??

He owns the UFL's Las Vegas Locomotives!!

Bill Hambrecht (born 1935) is an American investment banker and chairman of W.R. Hambrecht + Co. which he founded in 1998. He helped persuade Google to use an Internet-based auction for their initial public offering (IPO) in 2004, instead of a more traditional method using banks and other financial companies to find buyers. He is credited with popularizing this "OpenIPO" model, using Dutch auctions to allow anyone, not just investing insiders, to buy stock in an IPO, potentially raising more money for startups. Some of the companies he has helped have an IPO like this include Overstock.com, Ravenswood winery and Salon.com.[1][2]

Hambrecht is also credited as one of the first major investors to recognize the value of technology and biotech companies, helping to take Apple Computer, Genentech and Adobe Systems public in the 1980s with his earlier San Francisco-based company Hambrecht & Quist, which he founded in 1968 and which also backed the IPOs of Netscape, MP3.com, and Amazon.com. The firm was bought by Chase Manhattan in 1999.[3] In 1997, he sponsored the foundation of BOOM Securities (H.K.) Limited.[4]

In 2007 he was in the news for planning a professional football league, the United Football League, to compete with the National Football League. Along with AOL CEO Tim Armstrong, Hambrecht pledged $2 million to start the league up, and lured its first owner, billionaire Mark Cuban. In the 1980s Hambrecht was a minority investor in the Oakland Invaders, a charter member of the failed United States Football League.[2]

He is a 1957 graduate of Princeton University.[5] He has been listed as one of the top political donors in the country, giving mostly to Democratic candidates, and credits Nancy Pelosi, whom he met in the 1970s, with inspiring him to get involved in politics.[6]

William Hambrecht is on the Board of Trustees of the American University of Beirut,[7] Lebanon.[8] He was also on the AOL Inc. Board of Directors from Dec. 2010 to Feb. 2010.[9]

Its very simple she crap on the tax payer when she was screaming for a bailout for the big banks due to the downfall of the real state business, but what the media forgot was to tell the people that her husband vast investments as a banker include real state earnings that would have gone down the hill and their wealth depleated with the economic down fall

So she is a big example of why the govenrment elite bailout the banks to protect their wealth with tax payer money, they get to reap the benefits of the bailout while the nation working class gets the bill and unemployment

She help protect the wealth of her husband investments with the bail out and the elite others now she gets her "fair" pay off for her efforts, now what are you getting from the bail out? I got nothing.
