House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is doing some magic math to make the budget numbers work for the proposed health care reform plan.
She now calls income of $350,000 "middle class."
Ms. Pelosi seems to feel that a person's class is determined by their money. Pelosi typifies the American system of values in which our finest restaurants will seat mafia dons and CIA drug lords in their Armani jackets but would refuse a table to Gandhi and Mother Theresa because they don't meet the dress code.
Pelosi may be worth a half billion, but from where I stand she is about as low a class human being as can be found on the planet.
