Who is the One Percent in America?

Along with American billionaire and millionaire individuals, the 500 companies are believed to form the main part of the “One Percent” in America. Anti-Wall Street protesters who call themselves the 99 percent blame the 1 percent for their desperate economic situation.


Bank of America
Barclays Capital
Citigroup
Credit Suisse
Deutsche Bank
Goldman Sachs
JPMorgan Chase
Morgan Stanley
Nomura Securities
UBS
Wells Fargo Securities



 These 1% are the real looters/criminals and must be put behind bars.

American Millionaires

The number of Americans who are millionaires is about one percent of the population. NPR

Of the 435 members of the House, 244 current members of Congress are millionaires — that's about 46 percent and that includes 138 Republicans and 106 Democrats, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan watchdog group that tracks money in politics. In fact, there are probably many more millionaires in Congress, since lawmakers don't have to include the value of their family home and other details. NPR

In 2010, the average winner of a House race spent $1.5 million for his/her campaigns. The average Senate winner spent close to $10 million. Closely contested races are much more expensive. And about half of that money, on average, comes from an elite group of very wealthy donors. NPR

Wealthy Americans have more access to lawmakers than most regular voters and constituents do, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. NPR

The median net worth for a current member of the U.S. House of Representatives was $725,000 in 2009, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, and the media net worth of a U.S. Senator was $2.4 million. Open Secrets

The richest member of Congress is Darrel Issa, whose net worth was valued between $156 million and $451 million. Open Secrets

Here is a list of the 20 wealthiest current members of Congress and their average net worth, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, based on their financial reports covering calendar year 2009.
