difference between upper class and rich

since my previous thread was so well received...

what I consider upper class: can live off your own investment, able to open a private banking account (assets of at least $5 million), have your own relaionship manager you can call.

the truly rich though have their own family office (if you have to ask what this is, you can't afford it).

the truly truly rich have their own foundations.


so that's why I support Clinton's proposal not to raise taxes on the middle class. because there are people with much more assets who can afford to pay more first. Sanders on the other hand wants to raise taxes on the middle class. i just wish he would discuss his proposal more during the debate so everyone is aware of this.

10. I have no idea where they thought they were going with that to begin with.

Richsplaining to the people who live paycheck to paycheck and are just one illness away from being out on the street?

You think you've got troubles, pal?

I had to drive my kid's Porche while my Range Rover was in the shop!

Damned seat gave me such a backache I had to cancel my golf game with my tax lawyer at the country club!

Why I'm barely getting by myself.

Clearly you get to decide what is middle class since you are so much better than us.

11. Rich means permanent wealth

 

Upper class is non permanent wealth.

What's your point? That Hillary is for the little guy? All you are doing is convincing people otherwise.
