Sorry for the short diary but here is prime example #1 of just how out of touch Mitt Romney is with the average American...
BOSTON (AP) — Mitt Romney is promising to reduce taxes on middle-income Americans.As a reference point.... the median American income for a family of four is just over $ 50,000.00
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."
“No one can say my plan is going to raise taxes on middle-income people, because principle number one is (to) keep the burden down on middle-income taxpayers,” Romney told host George Stephanopoulos.While I think anyone would reasonably put $ 200,000 in the Upper Middle Income bracket because for a family of four that is what it is, to think that many Americans make between $ 200,000.00 and $ 250,000.00 and to call that solid middle class is absolutely delusional at best.
“Is $100,000 middle income?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less,” Romney responded.
Sorry for the short diary but I just see this disconnect with anything related to the average American as yet another example of how Mitt Romney is simply not qualified to be President of the United States.
