Hard to see how Warren wouldn't be, by most standards, wealthy, according to the Personal Financial Disclosure form she filed to run for Senate shows that she's worth as much as $14.5 million. She earned more than $429,000 from Harvard last year alone for a total of about $700,000, and lives in a house worth $5 million.
I am offering a trade that would make us both much better off. In exchange for her many millions, I will grant her full and complete ownership of my membership in the 99%.
