Romney really doesn't care about the Middle Class Either.

The great mystery to almost every politician in Washington is how hard the middle class has it right now. They don't know what it's like in that troubled "not quite enough" area of income.

Many like me have made just enough to keep us from our states Medicaid program Badgercare, or food stamps...whatever. If you're in this uncomfortable zone, you've already tried to figure out how to make ends meet after paying out $7,000 to $10,000 a year for health insurance. That kind of expense knocks you right back down to poverty level income status again.

And Romney's proposed tax cuts for the middle class is really an out of touch joke.
Eliminate taxes on dividends, capital gains and interest income for those making under $200,000 a year.

He's publicly supported Paul Ryan's Medicare plan , that is very much a threat to the benefits of the middle class, but isn't willing to tax upper income brackets. 
Gee, thanks for the break on all that dividend income. Here's a compilation I put together and the breakdown from Rachel Maddow:

  1. The growing awareness about the extreme income inequality and the very wealthy's grip on our political system indicate that some form of class war is all but inevitable. I am developing a set of ground rules for a possible class war that would guide it in a peaceful and productive direction. The Rules for the Class War begin at this post: http://www.ragingwisdom.com/?p=585 I am open to hearing everyone's comments and suggestions.
