How Did Harry Reid Get So Rich?
For a man who has spent his whole adult life in politics, he certainly seems to have amassed quite a fortune.
It’s just not credible that Reid has done this just out of his government salary. The man has raised 5 kids, through college. His various government salaries were enough to live on but how, with all the expenses, did Reid build up so much money? What did he do? How did he do it?
How does a man who’s “product” is legislation make so much money that he can build up more than four and a half million dollars of net worth?
Its small wonder that Reid believes in the power of government to make things good. They’ve certainly made things good for him. He’s risen from the son of a hard-rock miner to a fabulously wealthy Senate Majority Leader. Being in government, for Reid, has been like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. He hasn’t had to work for money, but he’s managed to acquire quite a lot of it.
