  •  Yeah, I feel similarly, I am low income, but (0+ / 0-)

    someone I worked with once pointed out the difficulties of having 3 kids, 2 incomes, up in the mid hundred thousands, way better off but they feel squeezed by mortgage, cars, college for the kids etc. Not everyone at each income level is living like a hog. Harder though for me to feel sympathy the higher it gets. Supposedly, in today's America, that $75,000 is the essential # where people above it don't feel greater happiness with greater wealth. This has to do with security for self and family, when attained, life feels good, up above that the $ isn't doing anything for happiness. Of course, $ creates access.
