Voting for this thread is finally closed and the winning answer is:
B) $250,000 income with a $125,000 tax burden.
It seems that most participants in this poll chose to have a better quality of life over the principle of being against excessively high taxes. There are three exceptions: those participants chose principle over selfish gain. Anybody who would sacrifice $95,000 for a higher ideal deserves an A+. Those who voted Option B in this poll but didn't make comments received a grade of B-. Keeping your mouth shut can sometimes save you a lot of trouble in life. Those who voted Option B in this poll but made comments made a C. I do admire your honesty but let's face it Option B was the easy answer. I can't give you extra credit for taking the easy way out. Those who commented in this thread but didn't vote will be receiving the grade of F and I will be guessing at what their answer would have been if they would have voted. I made many exceptions. There were some Libertarians and Conservatives who didn't vote. I gave them an incomplete and will be explaining the make up assignment a little bit later. These people will see an I beside their name. Wait patiently. Your grades will be posted within the hour.
