Sen. Obama: $97,000 = upper class
Sen. Obama: "I will be very brief on this and because, Hillary, I've heard you say this is a trillion dollar tax cut on the middle class by adjusting the cap. Understand that only 6% of Americans make more than $97,000 a year. So 6% is not the middle class. It's the upper class. . . . But understand this is the top 6%, and that is not the middle class."
