$172,000 is modest, $200,000 is rich!

According to an article in the Atlantic,

In bidding a sort-of farewell to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, he noted the "relatively modest pay" for which Gibbs has labored.
In fact, he earns $172,200 in a nation where the average family income hovers around $55,000, unemployment is high, record foreclosures persist and wages for most folks are at best stagnant.

Since President Obama considers anyone making $200,000 to be rich, I would have thought that  $172,000 would be much more than a "modest" income.
