There are but not to the extent of the entire Midwest. You know, the breadbasket of the US (and much of the rest of the world).

Besides, many of the farms in VA and MD grow non-PC things like tobacco and chickens.

And there may be a number of employees that this is going to cause a problem for. You may have Ed, who is close to retirement (say, five years), and he and his wife are looking forward to spending more time with their kids and grandkids and friends in the D.C. area....and they're suddenly told "D.C. or quit". So in their 60's, they either have to uproot and start all over, or Ed has to try and find another job. Or there may be couples where the spouse won't be able to find a job in their field in KC. I'd be willing to bet that a lot of folk on here who aren't sympathetic to the employees would be singing a whole different tune if it were them.
I said the same- they donít care. They hate government period - so no use to give them real hardships involved.
