61. $150,000 is not rich
The fact that more than half of those polled by Gallup believe an income of $150,000 makes one rich only goes to show how poor most Americans are.

People who make $150k a year create jobs and employ a lot of small business owners.....cleaners, contractors, gardeners, caterers, pet sitters, baby sitters, tutors, etc.

Remember, the per capita income in the U.S. is less than $30,000 a year. (More precisely...the per capita money income in (2009 dollars) 2005-2009 in the US was:$27,041.)
