Democrats like to define themselves as the party of poor and middle-income Americans, but a new study says they now represent the majority of the nation’s wealthiest congressional districts.
In a state-by-state, district-by-district comparison of wealth concentrations based on Internal Revenue Service income data, Michael Franc, vice president of government relations at the Heritage Foundation, found that the majority of the nation’s wealthiest congressional jurisdictions were represented by Democrats.
He also found that more than half of the wealthiest households were concentrated in the 18 states where Democrats hold both Senate seats.
There’s actually a lot of interesting information in the study, so read the rest of the story. I’m sure some liberals here will dismiss the study and its results because of who conducted it, but it seems to me that their methods are pretty straightforward.
The story also notes how the Democrats’ agenda is clearly being influenced by their rich constituents, as Michael France explained in this Heritage press release.
Anyway, I hope everyone, even those rich, rich Democrats, are enjoying Black Friday today.
