Relevant segment at about 5:20.

Yes, you heard that correctly, on Planet Romney from Universe Out of Touch, middle income is defined as $200,000 to $250,000 a year and less.

He also said, "...In the speeches I give over the coming weeks I need to lay out some of the principles that were described in that [59 point – and more than 150 pages - economic plan].  And I will in more detail..."

What a novel idea. And when will he do that again?

Harvard professor Martin Feldstein says Romney’s math will work, but he would have to eliminate the home mortgage, charitable, state and local tax deductions for incomes greater than $100,000.

When I pressed Romney on that point, he conceded that he actually hadn’t read the Feldstein report that he and Paul Ryan cite on the campaign trail.

“I haven’t seen his precise study,” he said.
