Since you don't know how much Teresa Heinz-Kerry is worth, this is merely another unsubstantiated claim. And surely you don't think former Halliburton CEO Cheney could be perceived as a "working class schlub" by any ordinary American's standards? (Which is really the point here.)
Try to keep up. You have it backwards. The way I phrased it is a millionaire is likely to be a small business owner. e.g If you meet a guy that has a million bucks net worth more often than not you will find he is a small business owner. You have it the other way around.
You are the one who is lagging behind the curve here.
You claimed, in essence, that anytime I meet a small business owner, the odds favor the likelihood that he is a millionaire.
Since 87% of small business owners make less than $200K per year, this is obviously a false statement.
Are you this friggin Dense. I stated that a typical millionaire is a small business owner. Not the other way around.
Here is my original post:

Regarding Theresa Heinz Kerry's net worth,
Since key details of Heinz Kerry's investments are not in the public record, a precise valuation is not possible. The Los Angeles Times' analysis produced estimates as low as $900 million and as high as $3.2 billion. Three senior executives at investment companies that handle accounts for wealthy clients reviewed the Times' study and said the $1 billion valuation was a fair and conservative estimate.
Bush/Cheney aren't even close. Mr and Mrs Heinz own 6 homes valued at 30 million dollars including one in France and a 35 million dollar Gulfstream jet to get them there. Throw in a fleet of cars and some gas money and you have a hundred million right there.
Again .. Get a clue.
