I feel like middle, only worse than the average middle class person.
I dont see based on this article how which way you lean poltically has anything to social class
Wow, I wouldn't have thought that the average middle class family would have $48,000 saved for each of their kid's college education by the time they graduated high school. Anyone else think that figure seems high? Most middle class people I know, even at the higher ends, don't have that much saved for sure.
but i wont complain much becuase i still shop in Nordstrom ,Bloomingdales and macys what we need is a stonger Economie.
This article anchored by it's quoted statistics is garbage and is meant to comfort everyone who is making between 35 and 100K a year to continue to think they are middle class. All over the web you find articles written about how little Americans have saved and how little the 40-60 year olds have saved for retirement. How Americans' net worth is ridiculously low. And of course, the comment that most middle class Americans believe that POTUS is better for the middle class is a joke. Soon, the threshol for the AMT tax will be 46K not the 76K it is now. And the gov't will be collecting even more from its minions. You might be able to afford a 176K house on 85K salary but that doesn;t include the school/property taxes you will have to pay. And good luck finding a 176K house on Long Island in New York. Please. There is so much boloney here it could be a Boars Head processing plant.
I think I know who that secret santa is who was passing out $200 the other day in NY.It
looked like it was either Donald Trump or Mitt Romney.LOL.
