Representative Sean Duffy, once of the Real World, now officially real stupid, please step forward! Rep. Duffy says he has lots of kids and lots of debt.
4. Sean Duffy, R-WI: At a town hall meeting in Wisconsin, Duffy was asked whether he’d vote to cut his $174,000 congressional salary. He proceeded to whine about how $174,000 really isn’t that much: "I guarantee that I have more debt than all of you. With six kids, I still pay off my student loans. I still pay my mortgage."

Here's a tip that others in your party love to give to people in the lower classes: stop having kids. Or stop having second homes.
And Senator Ron Johnson, guy who I'm not entirely sure exists at all based on the fact that he does nothing better than anyone, come on down! He's 6 foot something, 100 and something pounds, and he does not under any circumstances accept government assistan---oh, well, if it's just right there for the taking... NOM NOM NOM GOVERNMENT MONEY NOM NOM NOM!
10. Ron Johnson, R-WI: Johnson has been a harsh critic of the government stimulus bills. But somehow that didn’t stop him from seeking stimulus funds for renovations to the Grand Opera House when he was president of the venue’s board. His explanation when asked to justify the apparent hypocrisy was that "he may have asked a question or two, but that doesn’t mean he supports the stimulus effort or even wanted the money."

NOM NOM NOM!
