Okay, but how many people are really going to be able to cut down to a $19k (before tax) lifestyle, like in year 7, when they were expecting a $45k (before tax) lifestyle, plus inflation?

Personally, I would probably have a hard time doing so - my property taxes on the house I plan to have paid for are $4k alone, right now. On a $45k lifestyle that would be affordable. On a $19k lifestyle, I doubt it.
