Just like Sean Duffy in Wisconsin, Montana Rep. Danny Rehberg, during a town hall in April, claimed he was struggling just like all the other middle class. When asked what his salary was he claimed he was ‘land-rich and cash-poor. Like ranchers and farmers and small businessmen throughout Montana. Come to find out, Rehberg is the 14th richest member of the House, with an estimated 2009 net worth average of $31 million. If he can’t make it on $31 million perhaps he shouldn’t be making financial decisions for our country. If he were representing my state I’d be furious that he stood and pretended like he knows what it’s like.
