Democrats Define Rich!

Is the threshold $250,000 or $1 million in income?

In his role as head of the Democratic party’s political-messaging operation, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) has been one of the prominent voices in the ongoing and often heated debate in Congress over federal deficits and debt. At every turn, he has loudly accused Republicans of risking a government shutdown, or even default, in order to protect “tax breaks for the wealthy.” However, when it comes to actual tax policy — and the precise definition of the term “wealthy” — Schumer and his Democratic colleagues, most notably President Obama, don’t exactly see eye to eye.

Sheesh, talk about being out of touch with reality. $250k as "middle class"??? Give me a break. A person could live comfortably on $60k a year in 90% of the country. A person could live on $30k in 70% of the country.

According to Schumer, I'm actually living in poverty and so are 99% of everyone I know.

This is exactly what is wrong with the people we have elected to congress. They are so out of touch with reality that it is no wonder why we have an economy that is in the hurt locker. These ass clowns will NEVER be able to harness the leadership to lead us out because they are completely incapable.
