The "Middle Class" has turned into a very political term lately. It probably has been for a while, but now especially more than ever. An MSNBC anchor recently said that the US middle class barely even exists. It didn't sound right to me. So I found a "Middle Class Calculator" from CNN's website (oh gosh...).....All it does is ask for your yearly income and what county/state you live in. Pretty stupid if you ask me. Two points of data was it. So I plugged in my info, and sure enough, I fall below "middle class" by a long shot. I would have to make about $15k more per year to even get there, and that will never happen at my job. I personally think all of this is a load of BS and I have no intention of drinking the swill and promises of those darling democrats. It seems they want to pretend the middle class doesn't exist and "feel sorry" for the lower class and champion their own upper class as long as they agree with their viewpoints.
