The 10 Richest Counties In America 2017

Forbes reports:
Here’s one way to follow the money in the United States: look past the Washington Monument and the Capitol to the D.C. suburbs. Half of the richest counties in America are roughly an hour away from the capital.

Virginia’s Loudoun County boasts an eye-popping median household income of $125,900, tops in the nation, according to 2015 Census Bureau estimates, the most recent available. Almost 10,000 Loudoun residents commute to D.C., but the vast majority of residents find plentiful well-paid job opportunities close to home – the top local employers are Dulles Airport, the Department of Homeland Security and the Loudoun County Public Schools.

Loudoun County also houses a large amount of technology companies and data centers — up to 70% of the world’s Internet traffic flows through Loudoun’s data centers each day.

Medicaid Expansion Has Enrolled Twice As Many Able-Bodied Adults as Projected. Higher than expected enrollment is crowding out resources for the truly needy

The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Medicaid expansion has enrolled twice as many able-bodied adults as what was originally projected, according to a report from the Foundation for Government Accountability.

The group has been tracking Obamacare's Medicaid expansion since the program's implementation and found that one year into expansion, states exceeded their projections by an average of 61 percent.

"By the end of 2016, states had enrolled more than twice as many able-bodied adults than they said would ever enroll," the report states. "To date, more than 12.7 million able-bodied adults are now dependent on Medicaid as a result of 31 states' decisions to expand Obamacare."

As a result of higher than expected enrollment in Medicaid, resources are now being crowded out for the truly needy who can benefit from the program. The report finds that there are roughly 650,000 Americans who are on Medicaid waiting lists.
The fallout of socialism.

Democrats Ineffective Political Attack Ad on Trump

Gutiérrez ready to give in on wall

The Hill reports:
Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) said Saturday that he’s ready to give President Trump his signature border wall if the Republicans will agree to new legal protections for "Dreamers."

Furthermore, he said he’d help with the construction.

“I’ll take a bucket, take bricks, and start building it myself,” Gutiérrez told reporters in the Capitol.

“We will dirty our hands in order for the Dreamers to have a clean future in America.”

The comments constitute a remarkable concession from the Chicago Democrat, among Capitol Hill’s most vocal immigration reform advocates and fiercest opponents of expanding wall construction at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The wall... in the news.
