    • @NomadicCleric Yes, that's just it. That much money is fine if you are 2 people in a high cost area. But when you add children into the mix, not so much. Additional insurance, food, clothes and after-school activities takes a serious bite out of that money.

    • My partner and I, 27/30, bring in just over 300k, in one of the highest cost of living cities. I feel comfortable. We can afford a good apartment with a nice view, retirement savings, Healthcare, high quality food, payments on a new SUV, and a couple fun vacations every year. It'd be tighter if we had kids. What's sad to me is that that used to describe a MIDDLE class lifestyle. I recognize I am relatively fabulously wealthy, but objectively this should be the middle class.

    • @P S I am not saying they can't make it. I am saying it is not "wealthy" it is "merely" upper middle class. And having to work 2 fulltime jobs a day sounds horrid. That if anything sounds like it's time to move to somewhere else where only 1 job per adult is needed. And also, if you make about $400k a year for a family, more often than not each member of the family often have to work 60+ hours a week which, hourly, makes for a total of approximately 120 hours a week...

    • Republican /libertarian here . I think there are 2 main issues related to the biden tax plan that we have. The number one concerning thing has to do with his removal of the trump tax cuts. Which will raise taxes for everyone. The second has more to do with the additional raising of taxes on 400k + / small businesses. On top of the raising of taxes from the tax cut removal. The concern is less for the very wealthy. But more so for those employed by small businesses and businesses such as your own Mr defranko. Many businesses that employ middle class people will have this double whammy tax increase effect . Which will overall be a big net loss for the average American. ( most Americans )

  • I'm late to the party on this one but I was shocked by the $400'000 wealthy thing so I sat here and did some math. That's over 33'000 a month, $5000 for rent (that's the highest I've heard of for renting a house), and say even $10'000 for utilities($1000 per utility for easy math), that's still $18'000. And I know some might be coming from a place of not wanting their tax dollars to fund certain things but serious complaining about funding the country when you have $18'000 extra dollars a month is nuts. I bet the more money someone makes the more they complain about being taxed as well. My family makes under $60'000 a year, struggling to make ends meet and I'd be happy to pay more in taxes if it were to go to taxes to support others in my country.

    • @Some Prsn obviously anything above that is also wealthy. But I would consider upper middle class people making 400k a year to be wealthy, and as Phil pointed out, that is in the top 3% of taxpayers in this country so how can it really be anything else? Do you really think you need millions and millions of dollars/generational wealth to be wealthy??

  • Where I live $400k isn't wealthy. You couldn't even by a small crappy house in the suburbs with that kind of a wage. No, for real. My wife and I make a combined income of about $200k and we can barely afford our 900 square foot 2 bedrooms, single bathroom apartment on the far outskirts of the suburbs. And we are in no way living lavishly, hell we have been trying to cut the one day a week we use DoorDash out of our budget to save money. I know that kind of money other places would make us rich but we can't move to other places and make that kind of money doing what we do (if we could do what we do at all). So, no. I have to say $400k is not rich relative to where they live and where they live matters because you can't just up and take your income with you where ever you want to live. Where you live matters and what is considered rich is relative to that.

      Youngshot BYoungshot BMánuði síðan
    • What’s your point ? Would you not agree that if you or your parents earned 400k a year you’d be better off ? I definitely would love to live with that much money all of my problems would be solved I wouldn’t struggle to pay off student loans own a car and a house with that kind of money my parents work hard to make 60k a year and they in a position where they can support a family and live in a house so to say that 400k is “hard to live on “ when millions of Americans live on less than half of that a year when there’s people who live off of 20k a year how’s is what I’m saying ignorant ?

I’d rather her openly be an asshole so I can at least spot her and choose to give my money to someone who isn’t instead. The fact that I could secretly be giving money to someone who doesn’t agree with my existence makes me uncomfortable

  • Christian people didn’t invent marriage. It exists in every other major religion and outside of religion, so why do Christians have this idea that they have authority over the institution of marriage ? It’s a sacred institution but it’s not THEIRS. Especially when your legal marital status affects your taxes, your ability to adopt, splitting assets, wether or not your partner can visit you in intensive care & help make healthcare decisions and soooo much more, it’s not something that the SCOTUS has the right to deprive non-Christians or non-straights from

  • Would people be mad if someone used a verse from Revelation? I honestly don’t think people would react negatively. A few Christians would complain but they would be shut down. I feel like there’s a double standard, Christian religious symbols have been used and abused time and time again but if they complain they’re told to shut up. But if a different religion is used uncharacteristically it’s attacked as offensive.

But at the same time you can probably afford a 1% increase in tax, but I wouldn't call it wealthy if you happen to work in that area. I don't believe that you're middle class if you don't own a house, a car, and have the ability to afford having children. As a nation with a constant growth with GDP, I don't believe that accepting a smaller piece of the pie in the form of stagnant wages is something we should be complacent with.

In addition there are many polls showing that 100k a year is where the money happiness cap is. Once you get enough money for all your needs like food, housing, and doctors you don't really need anything else. Yet the top 1% of Americans own more wealth than the bottom 90% combined! everyone works at their company for minimum wage as they lobby the government and donate money to politicians campaigns so they can make money they don't really need... Btw trump lowered the ultra wealthy people's taxes recently.

Just doubling my income would save me so many tears. But if I made 100K euros a year, I'd be living the high life! Any more than that just seems unnecessary. I don't even know what I'd do with millions, because I don't want a big house, fancy cats, brand/designer clothing, etc. I guess I could use it to travel and experience the most amazing things, and help people who have suffered from the same things as I have - I'd give victims of rape and bullying and drug addiction new possibilities in life. OH, and go on the "Vomit Comet" to experience zero gravity! Edit// Nevermind, that Zero G flight only costs 5k per person! But 165K would get me the whole plane just to myself, to play around with.

  • Something I've noticed growing up here in America is the intense death grip the government and many MANY people in the country hold onto religious ideals, specifically for others to uphold as well. And it quite honestly scares me. I was raised to believe that I have the right and power to choose my religion, however I was put into a Catholic school at 8 and asked if I wanted to be baptized, when I had already been baptized Episcopal, both instances I had been far too young to make any concrete decision about religion in any capacity. I wasn't given the room or ability to look into or choose a different religion, even up to now and being Norse pagan and not practicing Christian holidays except for my family, I'm still not given the same religious freedoms that Christians and Catholics are allowed in this country. We are NOT a Theocracy, we are supposed to be a Democracy, and religions do NOT belong in legislature. If I want to marry someone of a different or similar gender, or lack thereof, to my own, I should be able to in my own way regardless of what someone else's religious texts say. I'm not part of your religion, why are you trying to make me live my life by your religious rules, Christians and Catholics?

  • Well a lot of times, if you live in a more expensive city, you get paid more for doing the same job. My office pays more to their Chicago employees than their suburban Ohio employees to take into account cost of living. So if you are making 400K in Chicago, you can't really move to another city and make the same amount. My rent for a 2 bedroom/1 bath in a neighborhood in Chicago is 2,300 a month... Now, I don't make 400k and that would certainly give me a VERY comfortable life - but I would say there is some ambiguity if that is considered wealthy vs upper middle class. (I'm a tax accountant by trade and all of my clients are very wealthy individuals, a person making 400k would be on the lowest end of the spectrum).

  • Geezuz, when we made 60kish a year, I considered us lower middle class. I think 200k a year is wealthy. 100k is upper class.

  • I make around 25k-30k a year and I struggle lol. 400k would be the end of all my financial woes. I am poor, but I am comfortably poor as I like to say; I live in Canada though.

  • id consider rihanna's backlash as a mistake if this was the first time she was called out for it. i feel like if she truly cared about it she would have said something the first time she was called out for it, not the second time when it gets more attraction. weird shit.

  • The thing is, city's have various costs of living, such as New York, with 68910.48 (according to numbeo.com). I'm using New York for this example, because it is often considered the most expensive one, so it would be the best to play devil's advocate for. After taxes, (not considering tax breaks such as 401k contributions) a 400000 salary becomes 232,604. We then take away the average cost of living, leaving just $163,693.52. This is all disposable income at this point. I will not make any asertations here, but leave these numbers to be interperted.

  • Hi Phil, I remember you being politically neutral and not pushing your opinion but for some reason, you seem to emphasize left-wing ideas more and more often.

  • As a public school teacher that makes less than $50,000 a year, I find it obscene that people making $400,000 think they’re barely middle class. People are so detached from the average American. In my opinion if you make 6 figures or more a year you’re wealthy. You have disposable income that you can choose what you want to spend it on and can afford luxuries that the average person can’t even imagine. Hearing these kinds of stories is what pushes me more and more in becoming an anarchistic. The wealth gap is ridiculous.

  • It’s disgusting to say 400K is middle class at best. I got a raise to $9.00/hour.

  • Dude! What the hell with religions!? Did we learn nothing from the Inquisition and other religion-based wars!? Having faith in certain God does not give you the right to force anybody to believe the same, or act according to your belief system. Imagine me going around and saying "It is terribly offensive to me that witch hats are not an everyday wear article, because as a witch, it is disrespectful to not wear it." It sounds just as stupid as those two stories Phill mentioned!

  • If I make less than 60k a year but still survive living in SF,one of the most expensive cities in America... you can fucking live with 20% taken out of your $401k+. People are fucking ridiculous when it comes to holding on to paper.

  • Ya got me phill. now I have to comment for the first time in forever. Do we really have to go back to the age old argument of if someone is doing some that doesn't harm anyone or themselves let them? Let same sex marriage stand. It literally hurts no one

  • 400,000 a year is beyond wealthy. If a person knows how to manage money 250,000 yr will make you rich in a very short time.
