Nancy Pelosi's Wealth Grew By A Whopping 62% In 2010

From The Hill;
Pelosi saw her wealth rise due to some stock gains and real estate investments made by her husband, Paul.
Apple stock owned by Pelosi's spouse rose from at least $500,000 in 2009 to $1 million in 2010. The minority leader's husband also took a bigger stake in Matthews International Capital Management — worth at least $5 million last year, compared to $1 million in 2009 — and his investment in some undeveloped residential real estate in Sacramento, Calif., jumped to at least $5 million in value.
This what the world looks like under National Socialism. The government gets to choose the winners and losers in life and those who are in political power and those who are well connected to that power prosper,while those of us who are not connected to the power elite wither on the vine.
