Dear Ms. Schwartz,
Based on your financial reports, as documented on OpenSecrets.com, we know that your net worth has increased by a half of a million dollars ($500,000.00) or more since you were first elected to Congress, while in contrast the majority of families in your district have seen their net worth drop during this recession. How and why are you getting richer?
Please release copies of your income taxes since you were first elected to Congress.
Your voting record in Congress documents that you don’t think government taxes too much or wastes too much of our hard-earned tax dollars. Could this be because you are a multi-millionaire and one of the richest members of Congress serving in the House of Representatives?
The House of Representatives is the people’s House. Transparency and full disclosure are the only ways to be sure public officials are serving taxpayers and not taking care of themselves instead.
Please let us know when you will be releasing your taxes.
Candidate for Congress
