Why oh why can't we have a better press corps?
Reading is for Snobs: These Are The People The Wall Street Journal Thinks We Should Have Sympathy For?: The Wall Street Journal had an article providing a fairly thorough breakdown of the new tax policies that will now be in effect due to the "fiscal cliff" agreement…. The article itself wasn't too bad…. However, it did include one little thing…. Yes, in that comic, every single one of those families makes a six figure income, the lowest being $180 thousand, and yet because of the new tax hikes imposed by Obama, they all appear as though he ran over the family dog.
The median household income in the U.S. between 2007-2011 was $52,762, but the American people are all supposed to shed tears for those that make between three to twelve times as much? Seriously, how out of touch do you have to be to think that? Of course, this is the same outfit that supported a guy who thought making $250k qualified as "middle income".
Just how many female-headed single-parent families with two children under 10 are there in the United States making $260K/year, anyway?
