madgonad: All of these people still have to work for a living. While the upper middle class are likely to become millionaires over time, they still have jobs or own businesses that they must continue to work at in order to continue their lifestyle.


People who make between $167-$350k need to work to "continue their lifestyle" while people who make between 0-35k need to work to continue to eat.

Now, which one of these categories can spare some fng change for the tax man?

That wasn't my point, but I agree with you. I am in the top 2% and would happily pay more taxes to save this country from fiscal ruin. This nation has given me everything and I understand that it is my responsibility to pay it forward. I can't comprehend how the greed-heads at the GOP lost this basic idea of staying current and making the nation a better place for the next generation.

The next generation can't or won't vote, and the last generation votes more than the current generation.


That contributes to it, but part of me think that the Right wants to undo all of the progress made in the 20th century and they think the only way to change those laws and structures is to cause an economic collapse (due to debt). The ownership class has diversified holdings, so they will survive it and have the capital to rebuild afterward. The middle class will lose everything in that collapse. A scorched earth class war that will bring doom on us all.

So he has to define people in the top 2% of income as "middle income" to try to peddle the line that Obama's tax plans will/have raised incomes on "middle income" families according to his definition, with the assumption that it will be repeated without the clarification that he is using a word to mean something no one else would assume it means (unless they assume anything Romney says must be lies or at least deliberately deceptive).

I don't know how you can say that $250,000 a year is "middle income". I would have a hard time figuring out what to do with anything above $100K in my present way of living. Secondly, if $250,000 a year is middle income, why are people freaking out about teachers making $80,000? That's low, low middle income, surely they deserve more? Finally, the median income is somewhere around $45,000 per year. I find it hard to assert, with a straight face, that "middle income" is more than five times the median.

WTF does "$200,000 to $250,000 and less" mean?

Less than $250,000 but more than $200,000? That would seem to be the case since he said "No" when asked if $100,000 was middle-income.

This is after he denies having read the studies he cites to support his tax plan. Real presidential material right there.

In before the apologists let him off the hook for "and less."

This morning Romney defined 'middle income' as people making between $200k and $250k. Way to go, Mittens.

I'll repeat this in every thread till November: Romney smiles at the thought of Americans dying. To him, they are only political tools, and he doesn't give a shiat about their lives.

You'd have to be insane to vote for such a man.

Flab: hinten: Huh, I guess Fark doesn't filter for donkeys.

There are pages of words in the dictionary with "ass" in them. That filter would get overworked.

"Ubisoft announces new version of donkeydonkeyin's creed for next christmas"
"American ambdonkeyador to Lybia donkeydonkeyed in Benghazi"

etc...


Actually, with the potential for hilarity, I now support a Fark filter for ass.
