For a nation officially devoted to the egalitarian ideals of communism, China has no shortage of lawmakers making themselves extremely rich.
The National People’s Congress, China’s mostly ceremonial legislature charged with approving edicts from the Communist Party, currently includes 31 legislators who possess $1 billion or more in personal assets.
China’s wealthiest lawmaker is Zong Qinghou, founder of Chinese drinks maker Wahaha, who has an estimated fortune of $13 billion, according to the Hurun Global Rich List.
I bet Mao is rolling in his grave. This isn’t communism at all.  -Mort
