    This is what we get to choose from, two out of touch typical politicians who are completely out of touch of what is the real income levels for what is considered Middle Class/Middle Income.
    According to the census bureau, the median income is just above $50,000
    Romney: 'Middle-income' is $200K to $250K
    Romney: 'Middle-income' is $200K to $250K- MSN Money

    Well Middle Class makes up the middle the 60% between the top 20% and the lower 20%, in other words the middle class income goes from $25,000 a tear to $100,000.

    So when Romney says middle income taxes won't be raised, he's talking about the top 20% earners. Sorry real middle class GOP voters.

    A lot of people in that bracket are Small business owners and that is their income prior to paying their employees so YES they are middle class .. IF you live in NY apt can go for 5K a month . You need that much just to live in NYC I bet..
