Why is Washington, DC such a popular metro area to move to?
I have heard so many stories about how congested and expensive it is to live in the Washington, DC area. I have also heard that it's the beginning of the North. But yet, I also read how many people are flocking there & living. What would cause you to move to Washington, DC or it's suburbs?

Because the billions upon billions of dollars that the Federal Government collects through personal and corporate income taxes, is mostly spent in and around the DC area to shore-up the lifestyle of the few hundred elected policymakers that live in the area.
