Congressman Jim Himes (D-1%) Should Switch Parties
Jim Himes is the Democratic congressman from Connecticut’s 4th District. The 4th District consists of New York City “bedroom communities” like Greenwich. Mr. Himes, “began his professional career at Goldman Sachs & Co. where he worked his way up to Vice President over the course of a 12-year career. There he worked extensively in Latin America and headed the bank’s telecommunications technology group.” He “lives in Greenwich with his wife Mary and two daughters Emma and Linley.”
Here are some factoids about the 4th District:
— The 4th Congressional District is 5th out of 436 other congressional districts [in the country] in income per capita.
— The 4th Congressional District is 22nd out of 436 other congressional districts [in the country] in income per household.
— The average income per household is: $82,174.
Bearing all of the above in mind, read this clueless tweet Himes sent out today:
And Greenwich, Connecticut is?
(He’s dissing NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, members of his own party who are trying to represent We the People as opposed to his constituents, the 1%ers.)
