Every member in the House is up for reelection in November, and many of those House members are campaigning based on bashing “the rich,” with the definition of “the rich” including anyone from billionaires to with annual household income over about $150,000.

Then there are the House members who come from high-income but high-cost districts, where $150,000 per year might be just enough for a family of four to scrape by.

Proximity to large numbers of high-income households could effect everything from how lawmakers see taxes to how they see health insurance subsidies.

For a look at the 10 congressional districts with the highest percentage of households earning more than $200,000 per year, see the slideshow above, which is based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2019 American Community Survey.
