House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democrat from the great state of California, has done very well for herself during this "great recession". It appears her Net Worth has increased 62% last year earning her the status as one of the wealthiest members of Congress.
According to a financial disclosure report recently released Nancy Pelosi was worth $35.2 million in 2010. In 2009 she was only worth $21.7 million.
I guess fighting for the "middle class" really pays off.
