Implying that

-Being a senator vs. being congress was relevant
-That US politics don't matter to anyone outside of the US
-That I need a pass from you

Yes, they do; the figures I gave are for their actual contributions - not projected.

How is the difference between a Represenative and a Senator anything but relevant?

1. Loopholes need to be cut. What they pay and what they should pay are not the same thing. Which is why I liked Romney's Capital Gain tax rate.

2. Go easy on him, a fight on the internet rarely uses facts.

I think you mean that Ron Paul is a Representative. Congressman is an umbrella term for Senators and Representatives.

But no one would call a Senator a "Congressman." Its colloquially known to be Congressman for House members.

I'm pessimistic about this; loopsholes is a subjective term, and all those loopholes have been put in place because some group of individuals finds them to be fair and beneficial and will whine and bitch a great deal if they get taken away. Example: mortgage deductions, tuition deductions, etc.
