  •  I think the $8.25 is in Connecticut and/or (0+ / 0-)

    New York.

    BTW Connecticut has the highest per-capita income in the US.  Just saying.

    •  That is due to the large number of wall street (1+ / 0-)

      workers that have houses here.  Believe me, the majority of people here do not enjoy that standard of living.

      •  Oh totally agree - the Wall Street types (0+ / 0-)

        right over the border from New York skew the per-capita income.  (I live in the Taconics, so it's a 30 minute ride for me to Sharon or Canaan, CT)

        But with that skewing of per-capita income, you'd think the people who make megabucks would be more supportive of the poor.  But they seem to be channelling Marie Antoinette's "Let them eat cake" mentality.

        (And I know she didn't actually say that...)
