Congress is now three times as Jewish as the US is

The Times of Israel – by Ben Sales

JTA — More than 6 percent of the new Congress is Jewish, with 34 Jews among the total of 535 lawmakers in the US House of Representatives and Senate.

Jews make up 2% of the US population, so Congress as a whole is more than thrice as Jewish as the country in general, according to a new study by the Pew Research Center on religion in the new Congress, which was inaugurated Thursday. 

The number is even larger in the Senate, where eight, or 8%, of the 100 members are Jewish.

This Congress has four more Jews than its predecessor, which had 30 Jewish members. But it’s far from the most Jewish Congress ever. That was the 1993 Congress, which boasted 51 Jews — nearly 10% of the total.

All of the Jews in the Senate are Democrats, as are all but two in the House. The Republican exceptions are Reps. Lee Zeldin and David Kustoff, from New York and Tennessee, respectively. They are the only non-Christian Republicans in the Congress, according to Pew.

Congress as a whole is overwhelmingly Christian — even more so than the country. Seventy-one percent of Americans identify as Christian, compared to 88 percent of Congress. Both Protestants and Catholics are overrepresented on Capitol Hill.

The most underrepresented group is unaffiliated Americans. Twenty-three percent of Americans don’t identify with a religion, but that’s true of just a sole member of Congress — new Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema.

Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and Unitarians are also represented in Congress.

    Behind the scenes the numbers are much greater. In every corner, directing congress, directing just about everything.

    Obviously the math is wrong in that article, I’m pretty sure the multiplier is supposed to be the number 6 million or something….

      Just like everybody else, huh? But hey, what the f-k, let’s blame it on the niggers since they hold all the wealth in this country and are in the best position to put a stop to this shit. Yeah, that’s a great idea. Let’s divide by race.
      Your comments looked okay up to this point, but if you fall for the divide in any quarter, race, gender, or age, you aid and abet the enemy, don’t you?
      Our oppressors, just like those of us they would subjugate, come in all pigments of skin, just like the American nationals who want their Bill of Rights do.
