Romney: ‘Middle-Income’ is $200K to $250K and Less

Actually, Romney is probably close to right here. He was talking about the upper range of MIDDLE income, not MEDIAN. Median income is the average between the highest and the lowest incomes, and is set right now at around $50K. Given how many US citizens are earning low or minimum wages right now, if you took an average, you'd likely get that figure. MIDDLE class, however, spans a range. And I can see how, given the enormous inequity of wealth in the USA, $250K might not really be all that much, by comparison. Remember, there are also the divisions of low/mid/upper middle class too. Let's focus on something smarter. Romney gives us so many gaffes, we don't need to go looking for them where they aren't.
