I would say low middle class. Me and my husband make about 30,000 a year, we both work about full time and no kids.

Low middle class here too.  If I was rich I wouldn't even bother with Fusion Cash.

I am also happy that the taxes didn't get raised, but we aren't out of the woods yet.  They only passed something because they HAD to.

I consider myself middle class, I guess. Never really thought about it. I know I'm not poor, nor am I rich, but I consider myself rich because I have a wonderful family. Also, I always determine wealth based upon what you have achieved in your life and how much you are happy. I don't like to talk about money or class people based upon how much they have in dollar amounts, but I wouldn't mind being rich! Haha!  ;D

It's my understanding that there is a 2% payroll tax that went into effect on the first which has nothing to do with the increased tax rates on the rich and will affect all workers.  Additionally, I believe there are numerous taxes that will hit the middle class as part of Obamacare.

U you are happy that they are taxing the rich . Okay so they tax the rich. They have less money to spend. So that what does that mean? They have less money! So they they don't have the money to hire some people who they was going to hire. Or they may have to lay off people to pay them extra taxes. That they were used to hire somebody or keep somebody working! Instead he you are given the money to all Obama to waste on his unemployed buddies that don't like to work and get welfare all the time!

My paycheck is about to decrease.  Who knows what kind of taxes Obamacare is about to fall on us.  They only people who have escaped this is the people who have unearned income.

The saying of taxing the rich would only lead to less jobs. How about when they were not being taxed so much and the recession hit, they did not provide many jobs then. The jobs was sent out of USA. The rich got richer and the poorer got poorer. I am poor I am not even close to middle class.

I always thought that I was middle class, but lately I think we have been referred to as the "working poor". lol I don't think we are poor, but according to others we are.

I am middle class but my family lives like we are rich!  In either case the tax situation wouldn't have effected our household nor does it seem as if it ever will. Last year was a fairly good year from an income standpoint but everything that was disclosed was quickly spent and the expense limit seems to have been raised.  It seems very hard to say no to the family...especially when I am off working all of the time.  The smallest income source I have are the point to clicks and fusion cash as well as the accounts that this source has built and it seems that my family wants to get their hands on this small amount as well! When does the bleeding stop?!?
