See, that median household in SF that has an income of $63K? Well, their cost of living is $63K. (That is, unless you want to try to claim that their cost of living is lower than their income, and they're saving for their future or something.) See, they manage to live there, on that much.
Now, that median household might be one guy. He might be living in a rented apartment. The median household is not "the median family of four who own their own home".
You want some facts brought into the conversation? Let's see. What could we do about that?Where is your well-supported, fact-filled rebuttal? Great when we only have to report half of the story.
I know. You could go out, find some, and post them.
Or you could throw out vague claims, supported by nothing other than putting the words "cost of living" somewhere in your post.
Just me, but I'd suggest trying to back up your first claims, before trying to make new ones.Good to know though that we can quit our jobs tomorrow and live our lavish lifestyles forever because we're rich! So can all of the married cop/teacher combos around here because they bring in that type of income also.
(Actually clearly stating new ones might be a good idea, too.)
(That is, unless your point is dumb. Then being vague about it and not actually stating your argument might be a good idea.)

We're all here because
we're not all there
Hell man, given Mitt Romney paid 12.9 and 13.9 % income tax for the two years of returns he submitted while sheltering hundreds of millions offshore outside of the reach or the IRS... It doesn't seem to me that the effort should be to raise the highest tax rate. The effort should simple be to apply it across the board.
