    what he's saying is that $100,000 isn't the upper level cutoff.  That's the only way to read this:  

    GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Is $100,000 middle income?

    MITT ROMNEY: No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less.

    The only way to read that sentence -- "middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less" is that, in his view, "middle income" goes up to $250,000 -- which is the exact same position as the President, who says that "the rich" are those two-income families over $250,000.

    If you read the whole sentence, it's clear that he doesn't mean that $100,000 is not part of middle income.  "$250,000 and less" means that $250,000 is the upper cutoff.  

    How does Romney's position on where "middle income" ends and "the rich" start differ from the President's position?
