In Calif? NOt with two working in a family.....

In MD? Probably not...not with two working in the family. Same for NYC area. Heck, even garbage collectors make over $100K there. Oh, that is 'santitation workers'.

In TX, outside of downtown Dallas and Houston, you can live very well on $250K a year. Of course, with two working people, you are probably paying $60 to $80K in taxes..maybe more...like $135K in taxes. Likely get clobbered by AMT.

I guess that leaves out Hillary and Obama.....with their multi million dollar incomes. I'm sure they 'really feel the pain'.....and poor Ms Obama with $350K plus salary....and more $$$ for the boards she now sits on.

Let's see...Bill Clinton just got 1 million bucks for one speech. Oh, I'm sure they 'really feel the pain' of the struggling workers in PA and OH.....
