Obama's Middle-Class Task Force Has No Middle Class

Still, the middle class may have a better shot at making ends meet than at influencing the Middle Class Task Force. That's because no member of the Middle Class Task Force is actually middle class. While defining America's most beloved demographic group has never been an exact science, most academics agree that the term refers to anyone earning between $30,000 and $100,000 a year.

Not camps as in summer camps. Camps as in prison camps and perhaps even concentration camps.

One of the first thing the Obama Administration did was to legitimize their existence.

These camps, which can be found in every state in the union, currently sit empty and are intended to be pressed into service in the event of an "emergency."
