15. Chris Stewart
- State: Utah
- Estimated net worth: -$490,000
A very unpopular person among his constituents, Rep. Chris Stewart also claims to be one of the poorest members of Congress. He self-reports $270,000 in assets (all in the form of investments) and claims $760,000 in debt to his name, according to a 2015 report from the website Roll Call.
