and considering the cost of that apartment, it would seem I UNDER estimated his income by a few hundred thousand a year. He needs to make at least 1/5 of the cost in order to be able to afford that apartment. Which would make his income at least $340,000 a year. The average income of those in the top 4% is $278,500 and their average tax cut from ATRA was $8,930.
The fact that Krugman is praising this deal, just might, possibly, have something to do with how much he gains from this deal.
It's more than slightly possible and you do not refute anything until you provide an actual figure for how much he does make. Because you probably don't know either. Whereas I have provided some evidence to back up my theory.
