Author information:?So the young entrepreneur grabbed a white cooler, just over half of American households are truly middle class,farsmaller than the 62 percent who self-identify that wayTo dig further into the data The Washington Post opted to define middle class as American households with incomes that fall between the 30th percentile mark and the 80th percentile mark It captures half of US households but the range is skewed high enough so that someone would have to be well above the poverty line and earn at least $16 an hour in a full-time job to qualifyAmerica’s middle-class ranges from $35000 to $122500 in annual income according to The Post’s calculation (The data is in 2016 dollars You can see in the chart below how much the range varies by household size) Rakesh Kochhar associate director of research at Pew calls it a "fair" estimate He helped craft Pew’s definitionThe bottom line is: $100000 is on the middle-class spectrum but barely: 75 percent of US households make less than thatOthers prefer to define middle class by the lifestyle you can afford They think of middle class status symbols such as being able to own a home and car and go on a family vacation now and then to places like Disney World or the beachFormer Vice President Joe Biden headed up a Middle Class Task Force which put out a report in 2010 classifying middle class like this: "Middle-class families are defined by their aspirations more than their income [they] aspire to homeownership a car college education for their children health and retirement security and occasional family vacations"In Beattyville Kentucky a place dubbed "America’s poorest white town" median income is only $16000 and a typical home costs only $53000 Deep poverty also exists on many Indian reservations such as the one in Blackwater Arizona where the median income is just $18000On the other end of the spectrum are rapidly developing cities like the San Francisco area where Osegueda lives The median income is a whopping $136000 in Palo Alto the hub of Silicon Valley Even engineers at Facebook have been struggling to pay their rent Being able to save for a home seems even more of an implausible scenario"My husband and I sometimes look at each other and say what are we doing here A house here costs a million dollars" says Osegueda "It’s kind of insane when you think about it"Osegueda and her husband once lived in the trendy Mission District of San Francisco but they moved out of the city when apartments on their block started renting for $4000 a month for a one-bedroom Osegueda has been staying home to take care of her one-year-old son but she drives a few days a week for ride-share service Lyft to help the family budget and mingle with people in the city she lovesAmerica’s vast differences in pay and costs make creating a once-size-fits all tax policy tricky One of the biggest dilemmas Republicans face as they work on the tax bill is where to draw the tax brackets lines for people of different incomes GOP leaders are still working out where to set the rates and at what income level those rates will kick inIt’s even more complicated when you consider race and educational attainment Eighty-five percent of African Americans and 82 percent of Hispanics make less than $100000 according to US census data And 85 percent of people with only a high school education a group Trump won handily in the election make under that thresholdAnother big debate right now is whether to get rid of the state and local tax deduction (known as SALT) This allows people to deduct their state and local taxes from their federal income taxes a benefit that’s particularly lucrative for people in high tax cities and states such as San Francisco It could make a substantial difference to some middle-class familiesRepublicans aren’t the only ones who have had a dicey time defining middle class In the 2008 Democratic primary Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama famously sparred over this question They ended up settling on $250000 as the maximum threshold Once Obama won the nomination he campaigned on a promise not to raise "any form" of taxes on individuals making less than $200000 and couples making $250000 or less Clinton resurrected that pledge in the 2016 campaign taking heat from progressives for pandering to the well offPoliticians almost always say their top concern is the well-being of the "middle class" taking advantage of the vague definitions of the term to appeal to voters at a broad range of income levelsBut as Republicans look to rewrite the tax code their proposal to sharply cut tax rates while also eliminating many tax deductions will have winners and losers – including among people who consider themselves middle classStory by Heather Long Long is an economics correspondent Prior to joining Wonkblog she was a senior economics reporter at CNN and a columnist and deputy editor at The Patriot-News in Harrisburg PennsylvaniaThe program called "reinsurance" will absorb up to $271 million per year in expensive medical claims over the next two years Those costs would ordinarily have to be paid for by insurers and passed on to their customers in the form of higher premiums Premiums in the individual market could be lower by 20 percent in 2018 than they would be without reinsurance the state Department of Commerce estimatedThe $542 million bill will be paid for out of the state’s general fund and a special fund intended to provide health care to low-income MinnesotansBut Dayton objects to how this plan is paid for how it’s structured and to Republicans’ rejection of his preferred fix HMOs also refused his request for assurances that they would offer plans next year if reinsurance was passed"Having received no responses I could not sign this legislation for that reason alone in addition to my other concerns previously stated" Dayton wrote in a letter Monday April 3 "However I agree with you this bill’s authors and those legislative leaders who believe that this subsidy must be committed to the health insurance industry at this time to try to induce their participation in Minnesota’s Individual Market in 2018 at the lowest possible rates"Torn between feeling the bill was necessary and feeling it was flawed Dayton chose a middle ground between signing it and vetoed it: he took no action Under the Minnesota Constitution that means the bill becomes law without Dayton’s signatureThe "individual market" affected by this measure covers around 4 percent of Minnesotans who buy insurance directly rather than getting it through an employer-sponsored plan or as part of a government program such as Medicare or Medical Assistance “She also wants to show it to people in her church group The green one is an
