Issa tops The Hill's 50 Wealthiest: Page 8 of 51


Polis is a member of the growing class of tech millionaires on Capitol Hill.

The Internet whiz helped bring his family's greeting card business online and also helped launched ProFlowers.com. That success has translated into some serious wealth, with the congressman listing a blind trust worth at least $25 million. He also has a number of assets tied up in software and Internet companies.

Polis saw his wealth drop from 2011 to last year partly because his liabilities nearly doubled to $6.5 million. That included a secured line of credit jumping to at least $5 million last year, up from its $1 million worth in 2011.
