Nancy Pelosi Defends Reframing Middle Class As People Making Up To $1 Million

“agreed I am in the same boat. Prop 30 just passed so now I am going to be paying and extra few thousand to the state and if Obama doesn't move the benchmark for middle class higher then I will get it again with federal tax. Basically when you make right around the $250k mark you end up making less money because of taxes than you would if you made $150k.. I was shocked to see I actually agree with Pelosi.. I never thought there would be a day that we would agree.. Please raise the definition of rich to at least $500k +.”

“Prop 30 is horrible. How the heck $250k a year is deemed wealthy (in California) is beyond me. And I am tired of politicians using the value of $250k as a wealthy indicator. If your making $250k and not living beyond your means it is still a bit of a struggle to save money if you mortgage a house and vehicles. I barely make over $250k and my accountant stated that I will pay around $2,500 more based on my last year’s taxes. $2,500 is a lot of money to collect from an individual for a single proposition. This will be less money I can spend in my local economy. And if this money they collect goes to paying pensions instead of helping schools it will be even more of a slap in the face. I love my town Santa Cruz but this really is getting ridiculous.”

“If you really do make $250K a year, and do not consider yourself very fortunate, then you need to look at how most of your fellow citizens are living. THey make around 1/5 that amount and are not whining. How dare you complain and say you are not wealthy. It's outrageous. You are spoiled and you are greedy. You need to go do some real work like a working class person does--do it for month or a year,and then see how it feels to really have something to complain about. Back in the 1950s, tax rates were up around 90%--if you had that, you would have a right to complain. Anything less, you are damn lucky and should be very grateful you live in a country and state where making that much money is possible,”
