Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA)

The Center for Responsive Politics has compiled a list of the net worths of all Members of Congress.

According to their analysis, the 53 wealthiest lawmakers owned nearly 80 percent of the estimated wealth held by all federal lawmakers in 2014.

Those at the top of the list include Darrell Issa (R-CA), Jared Polis (D-CO), Mark Warner (D-VA), John Delaney (D-MD), and Michael McCaul (R-TX).

At the other end of the list, however, are some extreme negative net worths. David Valadao (R-CA), for example, has just over $25 million in debt.

View the complete list on the Center for Responsive Politics website.
