Everything is ‘middle class’ now. The working class, working poor and poor have dropped off the map.
Is it because there is a major divide between the poor and the middle class now? The middle class are told they pay the taxes but the poor get all the gov. goodies (so anything seen as helping the poor is interpreted as a new tax on the middle class)? Even if so, why does no one use terms like working class? Is it because the working class (whites with a HS diploma) are considered a lost cause due to cultural issues? Why has middle class become the only phrase used to describe the class war?
