From today's WSJ:
Recent statistics released by the U.S. Census Bureau show the following: The two fastest-growing areas of the U.S.? Number one is North Dakota at 9.7%. Number two is the District of Columbia at 8.9%. Consider. North Dakota’s growth consists of entrepreneurial middle-class Americans working in an industry that’s saving other Americans billions in reduced energy costs. The growth in D.C. consists of more bureaucrats conjuring up ideas to capture those billions so they can reinvest it for you. Fellow Americans, would you rather “invest” or spend the energy savings yourself or have the bureaucrats in Washington do it for you?
