    Washington, D.C.  What't the impact of "government" there?  How much of their supposed "prosperity" is because of "government"?  

    In case you’re wondering why Congress spent so much time twisting itself in knots over the long-term deficit, instead of over the current jobs crisis, this might help explain things: Washington, D.C., is the most economically optimistic area in the nation, according to Gallup.[...]
     Not only does Washington have the highest index value of any state or district in the country, it's also the only place where the index value is positive.[...] In every state, a majority of residents think the economy is getting worse. In the nation’s capital, however, a full 60 percent of people think the economy is getting better.

    This is NOT something we should be looking at as any kind of comparison to mainstream America.  Nothing at all.  I see this diary saying exactly that and I give Joan credit for presenting it that way.
