well 250 a year would seem like poverty to him
and 5o thou well that is what he carries for lunch
Romney? He spends that much in a week! The middle class as everyone knows is going down...
Those of us living on Social Security, are lucky to have an income of $12,000 a year. This qualifies us iin the eyes of Romney, the government, and most people in the U.S. as pond scum.
It isn't just the politicians who like to pretend they are working class, but upper class Americans in general. It's a way to rationalize demanding tax breaks, while dismissing the problems of the rest of the country. The Tea Party members in particular fall into this category. Just like the tape where he was caught dismissing 47% of the country in front of the very wealthy I'll bet you in this case he was speaking directly to his audience and telling them exactly what they wanted to hear.
Rulers depend upon their subjects,
The noble depend upon the humble;
So rulers call themselves orphaned, hungry and alone,
To win the people's support.
Maybe Romney was giving the average, not the threshold.
Don't be delusional.. do you not realize the local furniture store ..not the chain store.. the local furniture store is a middle class american... but their income is over $250,000 because of sales.. They may not employ many people but they still have to pay a certain tax. : ) Mom and Pop stores are the same.. just saying
Are you sure he didn't say middle crass......
