Here’s the most expensive place in America to raise a family

A $58,906 per year budget for a two-parent, two-child household makes Brownsville, Texas, the least expensive metro area in the country. Highlighting just how difficult it is for most American families to make ends meet, the national median family income is only $38,203 per year — making even that city less than affordable overall for the average American family.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, San Francisco was the No. 1 most expensive metro area, with a basic budget of $148,439 per year for a two-parent, two-child household. However, the median family income there is $108,822 per year.

You don't raise children in SF, you barcode them and offer them to Google or Apple.

The missing comparison is income to cost of living. Thought about moving up by Euguene until I found out my pay was going to decrease at about the same percentage as my expenses.

Commute from Brownsville to Santa Clara and you're all set.
