More rich people hilarity from the Wall Street Journal! The graphic is beyond awesome in its breezy cluelessness. Feel bad for the poor shmo making $260,000 a year! Or the poor family making $650K! Waah waah! So funny. So tone deaf. So classic Journal.

Do enjoy, darlings. If you an afford it.

It should be noted that the couple with the four kids will pay $200,000 in federal taxes + state + property + sales tax probably totaling over $300,000. So while you may not need to feel sorry for any of the folks, we have to realize that this family and those like them are paying the lion’s share of the country’s bills. Not to mention the fact that they had to work for 6 months of the year without having anything to directly show for their labor because it went into the community pot.

I hear you. Not saying that’s not a valid conversation to have. I just was mocking the WSJ’s choice of income levels to feel bad about. Not, like, here’s a family of four making $50,000. That sucks for them without tax shelters and whatnot. WSJ is clueless. You are not. 🙂
