Congressional Leaders Surviving Recession Quite Nicely
Posted on Jun 16, 2010
Those public servants running Congress have some nice lives to retire to, according to the latest public disclosures. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has her multimillion-dollar California vineyard and Minority Leader John Boehner has money invested in BP. Woops!

House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio reported some 40 stock holdings in the $15,000-$50,000 range. His investment in BP, the oil company responsible for the Gulf oil spill, may be suffering, but he backs that up with stock in several other oil companies, including ConocoPhilips, Exxon and Occidental.
Eric Cantor of Virginia, the Republican whip in the House, has an extensive investment portfolio including a money market fund in Goldman Sachs valued at $100,001-$250,000.
