Washington Getting Wealthy

Radley Balko talks about Washington D.C. wealth boom:

If we look at household income, the picture grows starker. After the 2000 Census, the richest county in America was Douglas County, Colorado. By 2007, Douglas County had fallen to sixth. The new top three are now Loudon County, Virginia; Fairfax County, Virginia; and Howard County, Maryland. All three are suburbs or exurbs of Washington, D.C. In 2000, 14 of the 100 richest counties were in the Washington, D.C., area. In 2007, it was nine of the richest 20.

Radley points out in the article who’s expense DC is getting rich at, and the answer is yours.

  1. Yeah, those congresscritters voting themselves a $2400 pay raise when I’m unemployed and getting only $405/wk in unemployment insurance just doesn’t seem right, does it?
