A lady named Anne71 writes, that she (single, child-free) barely survives on $50K / year. She also says that it would be unfair to support a family earning $150K / year because "they are wealthy".

Taking an average family with children we can relatively safely assume that there are 2 children. Simple division tells us that:

$150.000 / (2 adults + 2 children) = $37.500 per year. So who's the wealthy girl here?

Even with one children the equation is still quite impressive.

I would agree that such calculations would not hold true for a family with no children, but anyone telling that a child costs less to raise is going to show me some maths first.
