UPDATE: I put up a post today mocking Mitt Romney for saying “middle income” households include those making up to $250,000 a year, even though that level of income puts you in the top 4% of the population. As it happens, though, Obama’s own tax plan considers the same group middle class. Evidently I was wrong in saying that this number counted as proof that Romney is out of touch with the middle class.* Rather, it appears to be an odd view held across the political spectrum. My apologies.
*Though, of course, that doesn’t rule out other reasons for considering him out of touch.
