Washington is Overpaid at Our Expense

June 24, 2013


Before we worry about re¬duced services and spending, let’s consider the following.

1. The regional economy of Washington, D.C., is $450 bil¬lion, which places it fourth na-tionally.

2. The median household in¬come is at more than $84,000 an¬nually. The closest area was Sil¬icon Valley in California at just more than $83,000.

3. Seven of the nation’s 10 wealthiest counties are in the Washington, D.C., area.

We are spending a fortune in this area. It is obvious that our Washington representatives and their staffs are well paid. A few saved sequester dollars would certainly not hurt them.
