Mitt has created a new social class, the mittle class, one that would benefit from the elimination of the capital gains tax, taxes on savings and dividends and as an aside, the lowering of corporate taxes – corporations are people you know. I know he’s not talking about the middle class, because the middle class has no savings, and in many cases, no jobs. And the last I heard the real middle class never plays the stock market which is another good reason not to privatize social security. The middle class may, however, gamble out of desperation on a scratch ticket or the penny slots, spending money it cannot afford. Some of Mitt’s remarks are posted in the Boston Herald along with a video clip.
