All through the campaign the Obama-Biden campaign had a standard definition of “rich” as those who earn $250,000 a year saying only those who earned that amount (or more) would be the ones getting tax raises.

Apparently now the Obama-Biden campaign is now lowering their standard definition of rich to those earning $150,000 a year.  — Until now, this was considered middle class by Obama. 

Could this be a sign that Obama will in fact raise taxes on, not only the rich, but also the middle class as well as the poor? —

MArk my words, if the Obama campaign is willing to lower its standard of definition of “rich” by $100,000, then there is no reason why it shouldn’t do the same again.

I really like McCain’s take on this,

During a rally in Hershey, Pa., McCain told supporters the gaffe revealed the Democrats’ true tax-and-spend intentions.

“It’s interesting how their definition of ‘rich’ has a way of creeping down,” McCain said.

“Senator Obama has made a lot of promises. First, he said people making less than $250,000 would benefit from his plan.

“Then, this weekend, he announced in an ad that if you’re a family making less than $200,000 you’ll benefit – but yesterday right here in Pennsylvania, Senator Biden said tax relief should only go to ‘middle-class people’ – people making under $150,000 a year.

“At this rate, it won’t be long before Senator Obama is right back to his vote that Americans making just $42,000 a year should get a tax increase.
