    Palin says she represents 'Joe Six-pack' - Yahoo! News

    A combined income of $215,000 a year is NOT working class. They're in the top 5% of Americans as far as income.

    And can someone please tell her that savings accounts aren't affected by the stock market???

    Depends. Try living in Alaska married with 5 children on that. It is probably comparble to 75,000 stateside. Why do you think they kill and eat moose?

    Don't bend the truth, here, Willow. $215,000 a year ain't working class by any means. There are people in Ohio with 3 kids earning $30,000 a year and making it just fine. THAT's working class.

    It most certainly is working class. How much do the Obama's make? When Barack got his senate seat Michelle got a raise bigger than the Palin's income.

    If $215,000 is working class income in Alaska, then most Alaskans are impoverished:

    Michelle Obama also went to an ivy league college :lol:

    I make less than $40K a year.... I'm working class. If I made even double that I can't imagine the things I could do!

    anyone making six (not single) figure income is NOT working class.

    If you had ever had to pay any, you might be bitching about them, too.

    This ISNT about what Obama makes jackass. Even he knows that he's upper class and he is trying to raise taxes on himself. Its about what AMERICANS make and $215,000 is not working class.

    Wow, some of you will just never get it
