I pointed out here that 40% of Americans think they rank in the top 1% of incomers in America. How absurd — and ignorant! As the old saying goes ‘And to think they have the right to vote!’

Here are some ranges for you to look at. It should give you a ballpark figure of where you stand. To find out exactly, follow the link at the bottom. But it’s important for you to know what your total gross household income is.
