I only bump this because I`m disgusted.

While being admittedly stacked in the `Working Poor` class, I`d consider myself `Middle Class` range based on both my net worth coupled with my cost of living.

If I make 25,000/year and am only forced to spend half of it during that time, another person could make twice that, half to pay half of THAT sum only to be considered `Middle Class` when he`s forced to spend more in the long run, making myself richer than he in the end.

Ratio`s change based on where you live. I may not make a lot, but nor do I have to SPEND a lot. I`m middle class no matter how they categorize it.

i don`t think i agree with it, either. it should form a perfect bell curve, which it doesn`t.
