Message Subject Respond to this thread if you earn less than $60,000 a year and are surviving... I am doing a little experiment here to prove a point.

I'm currently making more and my wife works..I went from making under $56k about 7 years ago fresh from dropping out of grad school. Every time I've gotten a pay bump the poorer we got thanks to going off assistance, through increased tax rates, and finally not qualifying for any credits or decent deductibles. This is probably the first year we won't owe an extra $10k over our joint tax returns over our combined 1 exception. It truly has been eye opening how much the government hates the middle class. I still have a shit ton of student loans left that I can barely afford even though I'm making more than double what I made just a few years ago and it's fucking ridiculous. I own a modest home in the suburbs and commute about 2 hours in the summer up to 5 hours in the winter every damn day. Success is more work than a lot of people are willing to pay.
