Apparently multi-multi-millionaire Republican president nominee Mitt Romney has a slightly “different” view of what income level constitutes “middle income” Americans (emphasis added).
Mitt Romney is promising to reduce taxes on middle-income Americans.
But how does he define “middle-income”? The Republican presidential nominee defined it as income of $200,000 to $250,000 a year.
Romney commented during an interview broadcast Friday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
According to the United States Census Bureau, the median household income (the midpoint for the nation) is just over $50,000 per year.
So when Mitt Romney talks about not raising taxes on “middle income” Americans, he’s really referring to folks that constitute the top four percent of income earners in the United States.
The rest of us? We’re screwed if Mitt Romney gets elected president.
