A map of the wealthiest counties in the country show that federal employees are parasites to the body politic.
The body politic of the American people is being bled dry, and there are five counties that are drinking it up. These five counties are all suburbs of Washington, DC. They have the highest median household incomes in the nation.
Imagine that! It’s almost as if the federal government is feeding off our livelihoods to support others.
Here’s a report on the situation from 2014:
CNS News reports, “Census Bureau: 5 Richest Counties Are D.C. Suburbs.”
