Mitt Romney and Barack Obama define ‘Middle Class’ as anyone who makes $250,000 a year or less. With that I figure most of Americas Working class is at the bottom end of Low Class as far as income goes, yet we are told we are middle class. Hell, I thought I was upper middle class in years past but now I see I was only middle class hahaha.
From an interview broadcast Friday on ABC’s Good Morning America …
“Is $100,000 middle income?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less,” Romney responded.
Romneys campaign later clarified that Romney was referencing household income, not individual income. OH WOW ! That makes all the difference you putz. The Census Bureau reported this week that the median household income — the midpoint for the nation — is just over $50,000.
I have no solution for the political system in this once great nation. Both sides kowtow to the same master and have done so for the past 20 years or so. The illusion is making you think you have a choice and that your voting makes a difference.
