DC’s Plutocrats reports on where in the U.S. wealth is concentrated; no surprise it swarms around “the flagpole.” That is GI-speak for where the base commandant’s office is located, in this case the Capital.
The five richest counties in the United States when measured by median household income are all still suburbs of Washington, D.C., according to American Community Survey data released today by the Census Bureau.

In fact, ten of the top twenty richest counties in the country are suburbs of Washington, D.C., according to this new data.
The bedroom communities of DC constitute a giant collection of over-paid bureaucrats, fat cat lobbyists, think tank gurus, and “government relations” offices. The entire area needs to be put on restricted rations. If it happened, they would howl like banshees.
