RETREAT: WaPo: Democrats shift the definition of ‘rich’ in battle over taxes. “As they head into the 2012 campaign, Democrats are changing their definition of what it means to be rich. Forget about families making $250,000 a year. Today, the party is only interested in millionaires.” The problem, of course, is that this may play better than their earlier line, but you can’t raise enough money unless you reach down well below $250,000 for tax increases. So while this sounds better, it also increases the gap between their rhetoric and their plans.
