Mitt Romney to George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America:
“Let me tell you, George, the fundamentals of my tax policy are these. Number one, reduce tax burdens on middle-income people. So no one can say my plan is going to raise taxes on middle-income people, because principle number one is keep the burden down on middle-income taxpayers.”
Just to be clear, who would middle income people be?
“. . middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less . .”
$250,000 a year? Nice. A family of four living in, say, Texas on $250,000 a year is living large. The neighbors would call them something other than middle class. Those folks would be “rich.” If there were any justice, this would end his campaign.
