22. The average income is only 50-60 thousand dollars.

 

When the tax cuts went into effect, my take home only went up $35 a month and I was almost within that range then.
Where is this $2,500 - $10,000 figure coming from? That is just another unsupported number making the rounds, without any solid source.
How much do our Congress critters make a year? That might have some bearing on the numbers.

That said, the cut off for extending the cuts should be $100,000, not $250,000 and the cuts will still cover most of us.
