    Default RTF Income Distribution Poll GDG....

    With all the political and tax policy talk recently on RTF, I've become very curious about what the yearly before tax earnings are of the typical RTF member. No need to comment, I don't want to know what any one individual makes. I prefer it be completely anonymous. I'll answer after a vote or two comes in so as not to let the cat out of the bag on myself.

    I don't buy the 250k thing.

    Pretty sure he will burn us all.

    I took just like I file my taxes: gross, and household.

    Maybe you should ask how many hours a week we work. Then ask the same question to the people acorn is rounding up. Also how much we pay in taxes would be a good question.

    I figured, but is it adjusted gross? Or flat out gross?

    I'm a teacher so I'm paid for 35 hours a week, but I work many many more.

    Seriously, Lainee.....I think he's just looking for an overall relative number.....sort of an "unscientific" poll for overview's sake.

    Mark whichever column you're comfortable with and move on....

    I guess I would say family. I don't think that way because my wife has only worked part time here and there over the last 20 years. Lucky her...

    Gross. Unless you're a business of course.
