Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Note that the median household income for a family of four in the wealthier parts of the US is on the order of $90K - $100K. Incomes are not perfectly stable - they go up and down for each household. What that means is that the majority of couples in this region will at certain points in their lives be earning six figures. A 200K level for punitive rates seems a bit low under those circumstances.
