Middle class

Okay 250K a year wins. You know who in the federal government is not middle class? The President and the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court. Middle class? Every Senator and Congressman. The Speaker of the House. Associate Justices of the Supreme Court. The Vice President of the United States.

All them people is just like me and my little old social security check. Thank the fuckin' Gentle Jesus that me'n my homies will never pay a nickle more in taxes cuz "Freedom!"....

Supporting the idea that 250K is middle class is bullshit.

1. I am not sure the idea is that making 250K a year is middle class

I could be wrong but as I understand it 250K a year is clearly rich so there would be little issue raising Taxes on every dollar over $250k

2. Upper Middle Class Bourgeoisie

They sorta want to fight inequality, as long as they don't get their hair mussed.

There would be no contest this election cycle if it weren't for the fact that half of workers have seen no improvement in their lot since the market collapse. Many have lost their home and are now paying exorbitant rents, their wages are still falling. A lot of these people don't know what they have to vote for by staying with the traditional democratic party. The party may continue to fracture. Who knows?
