I probably picked a bad place to pick a fight on this whole subject, what would you say is the median income for OT dwellers, Bear?
I just get a tad ticked off when I consider how cushy the upper crust has had it for the last eight years and how I have fought tooth and nail to hang on to middle class status. And when I feel like I am underpaid, I think about people I know that have a herd time paying all their bills and still being able to put food on the table.
I did some work on my neighbor's van a couple of months back (beginning of Dec.). Parts were $200 and I told him $200 labor. He gave me the money right away for the parts, but asked if I could wait on the rest, which I said no problem. He's paid me half so far. He works part time at a restaurant and his wife does home health care part time, so she had to have reliable transportation. They struggle to get by.
So hearing someone that is in the tax bracket that is being bumped 4-1/2% whining just lights my fuse.

If it helps America through it's current crisis, I say go ahead! We can take it, after all we're Canadian!
