And the richest people live in…

Washington D.C.. SHOCKED! I am shocked!….

Not really. The money is in D.C. because that’s where the politicians do and allow the most fleecing.

Federal employees whose compensation averages more than $126,000 and the nation’s greatest concentration of lawyers helped Washington edge out San Jose as the wealthiest U.S. metropolitan area, government data show.

The U.S. capital has swapped top spots with Silicon Valley, according to recent Census Bureau figures, with the typical household in the Washington metro area earning $84,523 last year. The national median income for 2010 was $50,046.

The figures demonstrate how the nation’s political and financial classes are prospering as the economy struggles with unemployment above 9 percent and thousands of Americans protest in the streets against income disparity, said Kevin Zeese, director of Prosperity Agenda, a Baltimore-based advocacy group trying to narrow the divide between rich and poor.

In the mean time the union financed protests out there targeting the evil rich seem to be everywhere but in D.C., and at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. if they want to fire for effect, where they need to be the most. That that’s not happening is not a coincidence. If you want to really protest the money and the abuse by the wealthy, you head for D.C.
