We need a definition of middle class. The poverty line is a nice bright line. American poor are pretty well-off anyway. A good portion of the middle class in Nicaragua would probably be considered impoverished here in the US.
"After voters re-elected an administration that added five trillion dollars to the nationís debt, left 23 million Americans unemployed, surrendered Iraq to Americaís enemy Iran, and enabled the Muslim Brotherhood to gain control of the largest country in the Middle East, the one lesson Republicans should agree on is that elections are driven by emotions, not reason." - David Horowitz
