TAPPED - Stop By For A Smile

TAPPED, pontificating about some damn thing or other:

...Some candidates, such as Kerry, are proposing to preserve tax cuts for families earning up to $200,000 -- a group of people who are in the top 1 percent of earners in the nation. Tapped doesn't know about you, but we call those people rich, not middle class. Or, at the very least, yuppies.

As to whether "rich" refers to income, or net worth, we prefer net worth, but are prepared to surrender in despair. That said, I don't know about TAPPED, but I do know where to find the US Census report on income in America. This tidbit seems topical:

High-income households tended to be family households that included two or more earners, lived in the suburbs of a large city,and had a working householder between 35 and 54 years old.

So, over 35 and living in the burbs. Which part of "young", "urban", and "professional" does TAPPED not understand?
