You don't see the irony?
Single parent, 2 kids ~ Income $260,000+$40,000 ~ $35,000 Investment income
Retired couple ~ Income $180,000+$25,000 ~ $53,000 Investment income
Single person ~ Income $230,000+$35,000 ~ $25,000 Investment income
Married couple, 4 kids ~ Income $650,000+$70,000 ~ $180,000 Investment income

Who are these sad and forlorn looking people, sure as hell nobody I know.
$25,000 to $53,000 investment income would indicate a half million invested, and $180,000 would indicate a million.
Not in my world.

I tripped over the incomes, too. That ain't happening in my world, either.

Speaking of my world, my personal economy must be bouncing back...It's a week into August , and, I'm still spending July.

Let's go get drunk broke...Whatever.

OK, I've read thru the article (one time), and it's obvious the slant of the article
is talking about the "misfortunes" of families and individuals who have significant annual incomes.
Personally, I don't feel badly for any family earning over $100k/yr, particluarly about ~1% tax increases.

The insulting thing for me is the artwork in the pic where
the single parent looks so sad with $260k,
the retired couple appears non-white with no increase in taxes
... (you know "those people" always get the breaks)... ,
and the white family-of-4 looks so sad with $650,000 annual income.
... (and you know it's the single Asian women who are in those jobs to earn big-time)

As said above, I don't feel at all badly for anyone earning $100k+/yr over such tax increases.

But such is the world of the WSJ...

Mr Norman told reporters on Saturday that he initially hid when he saw the gunman running down the aisle, before deciding that "perhaps the only chance was to act as a team".
Typical Brit, slow to provoke, then lookout for your ass 'cause it's gonna get a whuppin'.
