anyway before we start the discussion/ debate/argument/

how about answering this question ?

I didn't get it right either... i thought it was 20kish higher

that's income for 5 people ?

Diane Sawyer: A Hidden America | How much does a family of 5 need to earn to be middle class?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5dIo6xYe_Y




this stood out the most for me..



this is the Medicaid requirements as of Jan 1, 2017 around here


should there be a law ?

Singles who are making more than 40K a year should be paying an additional 1/4 - 1/3 of their income + income tax

the same for Couples making more than 60K

if you are single and making more than 40K a year.. you are making more than enough.. you should hand over the extra money you made to someone else who is not working/has no income.

let's make it mandatory

Not sure what CR users understand less, transgenderism or socialized healthcare.

Is there an actual point to the OP? Because it just comes across as a stream of consciousness tangential connection of livable wage(?) and medicare.

Ya and I bet she got that fur coat from [rude and vulgar sentiments removed by mod]

But don't worry about it. Come on now, I see so called homeless people standing on a street corner that make 20k a year.

Let's tax them too.

I've known this one for a while, mostly because I actually thought about how much I was making once I stopped doing "entry-level" positions. People keep talking about the middle-class about a decade ago - and each year it shifts a little bit, off and on. Middle-class is depending on both state and federal - mostly in part to the cost of living in the area you're currently living in.

As for your question about whether or not someone who's single should pay more - I wouldn't mind. Currently, I'm paying 28% income tax (which, according to my last check - federal takes out $2,511.48, state $578.00, and social security $697.50). Trump's income tax bracket change plan has disappeared - but it would have bumped up my income tax to 33% (+5%). I'm kind of used to it at this point. I can survive on far less, just that most of the amount that they'd take are often given to homeless shelters or animal shelters.

This is the internet. Most people ranting on and on about how generous they are (especially when online) will probably punch a homeless child in the face over $5.. Being generous at the expense of another is pretty easy. Anyone can do it.

While we are at it, let's have free college education, free vision, free dental, free home ownership, free transportation, free .. what else can we give out for free in this country? Generosity is something people will do voluntary with their own time/money/labor. etc.. it is not forced..

There's no way I'm paying 1/4-1/3 of my income additional to the income tax for someone less fortunate! Forget it!

enough with the entitlement era

I have enough with the entitlement era

"" 40K where I live, (its a small town in NY) is not even enough to own a house, why should someone who can barley afford a 1 bedroom apartment with a car payment and electric + Gass. Should pay other people who do not even try to work wen they can? No this person is right, entitlement era needs to go, you are not entitled to others money no matter how much they make, their should be a flat tax, and everyone pays the same across the board, enough with this stupid pay your share nonsense, because the ones not paying their share is the entitled tools who use the welfare system for their own gain.

Family of five? Middle class? Hmmm...... between 75,000 and 90,000. Family of 2? Hmmm.... Between 75,000 and 90,000.

O.K. I'm thinking about the state of California. I think my numbers are correct for California.

Average price of house? In California, $600,000.

This one was a hard one to think about.

Again, for California, I'm going with 30% (rich 5%, everybody else 65%).

I think a national average is not really the way to go.... Especially, when you think of high expense places like California.

For example, a cheap one bedroom apartment in a bad neighborhood in Los Angeles is about 1200.00 - 1400.00 per month, and a nice place is between 3500.00 - 5000.00 per month.

Gas is around 2.90 per gallon.

So, yeah. I'm finding it's a lot cheaper to NOT live in California...

If you are earning more you should be taxed more imo.

and here i am in a 550 a month 1 bed bath apartment that isn't a crack den. Even if I made more, the only thing that will make me move is disaster or a family of my own. ( <----- ya, and I'll discover the cure for cancer long before this happens)

Cheap lyfe bebe:). No dependents, no super expensive city, just a 550 apartment, 40 for internet, 10 for anime and a cheap office style computer. Happiness don't need to be expensive.

When they take a percentage out, you are taxed more already. But with all these people not living in poverty, it is a problem. The government needs to take enough money away for everyone to be in poverty whether they are working or not. That's how you make it moral, right, and fair (i.e. socialist).

To the OP: They aren't generous. They are bad people who should not exist but for the sake of the existence of certain political groups are made through force to ensure IQ of our country is lowered just enough for anyone with a brain to consider our country mentally challenged.

Worst of all, it's not like they were born bad people. Ignorance and hate are not the defaults for people born in the US. It takes years of politi-whacked education and feminized disciplinary policies to escalate their inadequacies to professional criminal level.
