The millionaires of Congress

Measured by the polls, members of Congress might have become more unpopular over the last few years.

But they've also become richer.

According to a new study by the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics, a majority of members of Congress -- for the first time -- are millionaires.

Analyzing personal financial disclosure information, the study found that 268 out of the 534 members of the House and Senate had an average net worth of $1 million or more in 2012.

The previous year, 257 lawmakers (or 48%) were millionaires.
