I understand that Senators Menendez of New Jersey and Schumer of New York, Democrats both, are saying that in the New york City metropolitan area, the upper end of the income "bracket" for Middle Class families should be a million dollars a year rather than the $250,000 proposed by BHO.
And today on "Morning Joe," Dan Senor, the neocon mouthpiece, solemnly agreed that this was the case. "After all," he said,. (paraphrasing) "a fireman and a schoolteacher" (sniff) "make that much in the tri-state area."
So, someone who lives in "flyover America" who lives on much less than $250,000/year is just not to be taken seriously as, what? A political adult?
This, of course, reduces to rhetorical penury everyone who serves the US Government. soldiers, generals, IRS agents, postmen, Border Patrol agents, etc.
So, people really think that we are one people? pl
