Romney unaware of middle class

Gov. Romney has no idea who the middle-class people are. I am a retired senior citizen who has worked most of my life.

I have paid my taxes, contributed to Social Security, Medicare, health insurance and also unemployment benefits.

These benefits are not “handouts.” This is the American way. Gov. Romney stated that he thought the average income for a middle class family is $250,000. That comment shows how out of touch he is with the working people of this country. He also stated that we want “health care, food on the table and housing.”

Yes, we do want that. Don’t you? As a member of the middle class, I am very proud to support President Obama.
