No sh*t... which is why my comment ended with "Really depends on WHERE you live and the dependents."
I think people get too wrapped up in a number and don't take other factors into account. $200k today isn't what it was in the 80s. That's why I disagree strongly with the narrative of taxing those that make over $250k more and lumping them into the 'tax the rich' bullsh.
If you don't have a college degree, or a specific skill that sets you apart from the store clerk at 7-11 and you live in rural America... yeah, you have limited options. Sorry about that, but you make the most of what you've got and you enjoy life. But, that's morean issue of circumstance and geography.
