    the median income in this country is as low as it is.  I know many people in that income bracket, and while you and they are in the top 10% I know it doesn't feel like it.

    A middle class, median income in the US should be around $80K, not half that.

    And when I talk to others about the time I spent in Europe, I ask them to imagine what their lives would be like if they didn't have exorbitant medical expenses, and good education was paid for.  Imagine here how our economy would change if all that money was freed-up to be spent on day to day living expenses.

    The insurance companies are sucking it all up...
