  •  At least we are aspirational. (1+ / 0-)

    Median family income in 2010 was $50,233, yet the survey started at 50K. It's not surprising that respondents are wildly aspirational in what they feel is "middle" income.

    This grand misconception about income in the US makes talking about taxes nigh impossible. Add in the fact that both sides act like 250K is "middle" income, when in reality it puts you in the top  1.5% of households, means we are doomed to failure re: taxes.
