Actually, anyone who receives money from any source other than the GOVERNMENT will be considered wealthy.

Government employees typically make far above what their counterparts in the private sector make in salary and benefits. But they can never be considered "rich" because they're part of the Government-Welfare complex.

The White House is promoting the extension of the Bush Tax Cuts for the middle class (which should really be called the Obama-Bush Tax cuts, since Obama extended them in 2010) as exactly that, tax cuts. But the truth is, an extension of the tax cuts wouldn't be a cut at all, but would keep tax rates at the current rate. The Obama admnistration is implying on the official WhiteHouse.gov website that a tax cut is coming for the middle class when in reality if a deal is made by January 1, middle class families won't see a tax...
