View Diary: Mitt Romney: Reduce taxes on middle-income people. You know, the ones making $250,000 (162 comments)

  •  So has Obama: he uses $250,000 as his cutoff (0+ / 0-)

    almost every single time he talks about letting some of Bush's tax cuts expire but not others, and frequently in the context of discussing the difference between "rich" and "middle class."

    Has Obama ever mouthed the words "middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 or less" explicitly? I couldn't say, but certainly that is the conclusion a person ought to draw based on the context of his speeches.

    I agree that it is a ridiculous cutoff and should be ridiculed. That includes ridiculing Obama, too, in this case.

    I'm baffled as to why this issue is one to harp on. Mitt's such a caricature of a caricature of stupidity and is rich, fertile ground for other (more legitimate, less hypocritical) avenues of attack.
