    'Whoever' is correct in that sentence. 'Whomever' is only used when referring to the object of the sentence. That's not the case here.

    ...within the means of whoever is paying the bills
    ...she or he is paying the bills. S/he is the subject of the clause, hence 'whoever' is correct.

    Here's the rule.

    The sentence does begin with a conjunction however. It's not necessarily incorrect, but in this context, as the beginning of a one-sentence contribution, it's in poor form.

    Really? Are you homeless? Because it costs about $40 a day just for rent and utilities here. There are 3 of us. I would estimate at least $20-$25 a day for my 12 year old son.

    The thread is, "how much does it cost you..." If he's living with his parents it's costing them to pay the rent and utilities, not him.

    Really? Because if I don't work none of the rest of it gets paid for. I should bring in about $1500 or more today, it will be gone tonight. But then I have a family of 3, a house, 2 vehicles, and a business to operate includinh payroll. I guess that's why I get so tired of hearing about us evil rich guys from people who live off of others complaining I don't pay my share.

    In that case this is going to be a very informative thread. BTW at the end of it all I paid almost $20 a day last year just for federal income taxes.

    I guess that means you earn somewhere around $46,000 of taxable income, if you're single, which is roughly $125/day. I guess you think that's a lot of tax.

    And if your house is bought and paid for, or you live in a van down by the river, you don't have to worry about rent.
    You forgot about the rent you pay to your local government/county/school that lets you keep that house each year and avoid a sheriff's sale.

    Married, one kid, no mortgage deduction. I'd say it's a lot for taxes, but then most would probably say they pay too much. The perception is that there is a lot of waste and programs I (and many others I suspect) would rather not be paying for, which is going to translate to paying too much. Not sure where the threshold is that someone makes so much that they don't care how much they pay in taxes, but my business net was almost a quarter million last year and I don't have much laying around doing nothing. Between operating expenses and payroll I walk in the door in the negative every day and there are weeks (like last week where we were closed for 2 days due to impassible roads from a snow storm) where I didn't get paid. Materials costs were down, but fixed expenses are still there no matter what.
