  •  Took me awhile to figure out the "families" tiers (3+ / 0-)

    Finally got the general sense of it:

    These tiers are based around the minimum that a lower middle class family of four can survive on:  about $35,000.
    If you multiply that amount by 100 (i.e. 100 families worth of annual income) you get diarists first tier at $3.5 million; mutliply by 1000 and you get #35M
