    I'd say the same. 100k is a good cap
    I'm surprised she's only taxing "as high as 70%" though

    LOL try living in NYC, DC, San Francisco, LA, or any other major US city on less than 70- 100K. You're not doing well at all.

    100k is upper-middle. 250 has always been the breakpoint on tax brackets.

    Also it's dumb as shit to even try because it's so easy to shuffle money around and avoid taxes altogether now days.

    What's the most you can fit on your back? 50 pounds? Coast Guard takes down shipments by the tonnage.

    You're dumb. The fact that you choose to live in an expensive location does not change the fact that $100,000 is a lot of money

    Also you probably wouldn't be making 100k unless you live in an expensive area, unless you're rocking a masters with 20 years experience in whatever you do.

    They do that good enough already. You get double fucked if you're middle class and self employed.

    Nailed it. Most politicians are millionaires and looking out for themselves.

    This rep awkwardly walking around in a pavilion to try and avoid reporters' questions is a good indication of what's to come.
    These reps are going to tweet something incredibly stupid like "stand up and assassinate Trump" and then act like they didn't say it.

    I'm still baffled why these freshmen reps get so much attention. People realize there's over 400 of them right?

    Whatever. The value of fiat currency is relative. For example you are a multimillionaire in Vietnamese Dongs. LOL dongs.
    You could be a millionaire and still be broke if the market you live in is too expensive. The fact you equate wealth with amount of fiat currency is immature.
    For example, @uberfukken is no rich man by any means, however, i will gamble to bet Uber is doing quite well for himself: he owns his own home, just bought a new midrange sedan, and has enough free time and money to do shit like go to school etc., and shitpost here. So for Uber to have a similar lifestyle and collections of things he would easily have to earn at least twice as much as he does if he wants to live in DC.

    Wealth, IMO is being able to absorb the fluctuations of the economy without sacrificing your quality of life. Generally, yes, more fiat currency is better, but that depends on the market you live in, your current lifestyle and lifestyle choices and dependents.

    Maybe not in Oz. But in Merica the top 20% pays 87% of federal income tax. (100K or more.)
    ............................................................ the bottom 45% don't pay any income tax.
