$20,833.00 per month???? [View all]

That equals $250,000 a year, who decided that was middle class?

or $33,333 per month equals 400K per year.


20k is what my mother made per year she raised 4 kids alone on that income. We never had any government aid because we were just above the proverty level and not 4% below it.

It's just odd to me that the starting point middle class has been set so high



ETA the starting point for negotiating tax increases or decrease not where the middle class starts altough if you are looking at this from the top down it is where they think the middle class starts
