As a fellow human being I pray for his family who loved him. As a politician I did not agree with his sad Democratic performances. Totally would not listen to logic and facts. He will not be missed at all. I wish he could have stayed around to see Trump win in 2020.

I read up on his net worth and I quote, "...his net worth is due to his successful political career." He is worth ~$2 million and I know that isn't a lot but, how do you make that sum as a politician?

Is a 2m net worth really that much for a 68 yr old? Assuming he was saving money at a modest rate (congressmen make 174K a year). Saving $1000 a month for 35 years would put his net worth over 2M (assuming 8% growth). That doesnít include any equity on his home.

To be honest, I donít know anything about the guy other than he is a D, but I think we would be a lot better off if more of our politicians had a net worth more similar to his than the tens of millions to billions they have now.
