Romney Says Middle-Income Is $200K – $250K

During an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s Good Morning America, Mitt Romney was asked what he defined as a middle-income, a move which has his campaign clarifying the remark.

“No one can say my plan is going to raise taxes on middle-income people, because principle number one is (to) keep the burden down on middle-income taxpayers,” Romney told host George Stephanopoulos.

“Is $100,000 middle income?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less,” Romney responded. AP 9/14/2012

His campaign later clarified that Romney was referencing household income, not individual income. This comes as many perceive  him to be out of touch with regular, middle-class Americans.
