Mitt defines "middle class" as $200-$250 K a year. Is he that clueless?

" No one can say my plan is going to raise taxes on middle-income people, because principle number one is (to) keep the burden down on middle-income taxpayers," Romney told host George Stephanopoulos.

"Is $100,000 middle income?" Stephanopoulos asked.

"No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less," Romney responded.

His campaign later clarified that Romney was referencing household income, not individual income.

The Census Bureau reported this week that the median household income — the midpoint for the nation — is just over $50,000.

    He has no idea how the middle class lives and he doesn't care. People are waking up to this moron, and that's why he's falling behind in the polls.

    At the end of the reign of Shrub II, 'middle class' was considered 60 to 120K/year. This range would be upper middle. It wouldn't be 'rich' but, in most areas of the country, it'd be living well.

    Be that as it may, I'm afraid the POINT here has been lost amid the minutia. This is also the income range wherein most small business owners reside--and they're the ones who provide the bulk of the nation's employment opportunities. THIS is the income range which, statistically, should get one of the biggest tax breaks (IF we insist on perpetuating tax slavery/class warfare/social engineering). Liberals simply MUST get over their envy, or the whole country is doomed.

    $200,000 - $250,00 and LESS... so that's Obama's definition as well.....
    What's the big deal, with Obama in the White House there aren't any jobs anyway.
