But Willard doesn't think so. He told George Stephanopoulos on ABC's Good Morning America that it takes an income of $200,000 a year to be considered a member of the middle class. Yikes! That would eliminate about 95% of the population of the United States, since making more than $200,000 a year would put someone (or a family) in the top 5% (see above chart).
That means Willard thinks 95% of all Americans are either poor or working class, about 4% are middle class, and then you have Willard and his cohorts -- the top 1%. I have a couple of questions for all the middle class Republicans. Do you still think Willard can understand how tough it is for a middle class family in this sluggish economy? Do you still think Willard cares for anyone in this country who is not wealthy? If you do, then you are as divorced from reality as Willard is.
