We Have To Level With You: Poor People Make $180k A Year. Also, They're Probably Brown.

At least those are the lessons from this Wall Street Journal infographic (which we ADORE). Truly, how better to grapple with with the disparate impact of the fiscal cliff deal than by pondering a world where families earn just 14 times the median household income, while single mothers scrape by with a skint $260,000 in their pocket. The chubby-cheeked rascals!
