A Washington Post analysis of the growing gap between the economic experience of average Americans and their lawmakers reported that the median net worth of a member of the U.S. House is $725,000, excluding home equity. Kansas’ House members are below that, though it may be partly because they haven’t been in Washington, D.C., very long. Second-term Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, has a net worth of $510,013, according to financial disclosure forms. The net worths of first-term Reps. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler, Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, and Kevin Yoder, R-Overland Park, are $287,007, $267,514 and -$91,998, respectively. Kansas’ senior senator, Pat Roberts, has $845,022 in net worth, while Sen. Jerry Moran has $768,009.
