Thanks Feds: America's Richest Counties

It shouldn't be much of a surprise that of America's ten richest counties, according to Forbes, several of them owe their debt of gratitude to the federal government (ie. American taxpayers). Here is the list:

1) Falls Church City, VA
2) Loudon County, VA
3) Fairfax County, VA
4) Hunterdon County, NJ
5) Howard County, MD
6) Los Alamos County, NM
7) Douglas County, CO
8) Morris County, NJ
9) Somerset County, NJ
10) Fairfax City County, VA

Think about it - the top 3 are even larger than the suburbs of New York City.
