If there is a Poorest List, I wonder if there will be any from DC.

Responding to the comment, "If there is a Poorest List, I wonder if there will be any from DC".

What you do mean by poorest list? Poorest billionaire or the poorest person in the USA? DC has it share of poor folk..and if you are living on the streets, eating handouts, I would save you are among the poorest individuals in the nation.

Of course, we have poorest counties, poorest states, etc, but as far as poorest individual, I think there would be lots of ties among individuals across our nation.

Of all the horrors that come with poverty the lack of hope would be the worst, so let me be poor in DC before anywhere else.
