Berg, Hoeven spin for the rich

Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper, says it’s impossible to calculate exact wealth but says Rep. Rick Berg, R-N.D., could be worth as much as $59 million and Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., almost $53 million.

No wonder these down-to-earth, ordinary North Dakotans representing us are so ardent on cutting taxes for the everyday hard-working rich man. After all, according to them, none of us would have a job if it weren’t for rich folks.

My question: If it wasn’t for us, would they be rich?
