@DFWBrysco: Do you think that they belong in the "upper" class (the class that has multi-millionaires and billionaires) then? The difference between a $250k/yr household and Donald Trump is much more vast than the difference between that same household and the average household you suggest.
Perhaps you would care to define what you consider to be the cutoff for "upper" class income? I hate to tell you this, but even many liberals acknowledge that a $250k/yr household income is in the upper range of the middle class.
I find that, if many people consider your opinion strange, then it is most likely strange. If you consider the opinion of many people strange, then your opinion is likely still the strange one.

It's sad that Romney is as out of touch with America and yet feels he is qualified to run it. Worse are the conservatives in the media (and on here) trying to defend this statement.
The median household income (note - that is "household" and not "person") for the US is $49K-$50K. Less than 4% of the households in the US garner a total combined income of $250K.
This just goes to show how far the US has sunk. Instead of voting in an individuals belief in the best man for the job, America is going to go out and vote for the lesser of two evils.

'It`s so because I say it`s so` doesn`t work on most people.
No dear, it`s what you said because *you* said so. Here it is again:
[quote]$200,000 these days isn`t sh|t for household income.[/quote]
Perhaps you think poo is wonderful and thus meant "$200,000 these days isn`t wonderful for household income."
But probably not.
Now reply by denying what you said, again. I`ll keep pointing it out this time, so you won`t get away with it this time. May as well try, though, to keep your hand in for some time in the future when I`m not willing to keep doing it (or I`m not reading that thread).

patchouly: $250,000 household income is usually two people working. That calculates out to $60.09/hr. per earner for 40 hours. But most people making that much are salaried and actually work much longer hours for the same pay. That is the upper end of the scale for 'middle class` as well.
