Maryland is now the wealthiest state in the union, as measured by median household income, according to the latest stats from the Census Bureau. The typical Maryland household earned $65,144 in 2006, propelling it past New Jersey, which came in second with earnings of $64,470, but had led the nation in 2005.
Doesn’t surprise me. The amount of government and military people in Maryland is staggering. The reason we’re so rich here is that all your federal tax money goes to paying us. It’s okay, we like that. That’s why Virginia’s in the top ten too, I’d imagine.
