Telephone lines were open for answers to the question, “Is the middle class better off?” Amid reports indicating that the middle class had been significantly damaged in the past decade, fears about the further decline of the middle class have become a topic of discussion that was expected to come up during the national conventions. Video clips were shown of President Obama, presidential candidate former Governor Mitt Romney, Vice President Biden, and vice presidential candidate Representative Paul Ryan speaking about the middle class during the previous weeks.
The program closed with video clips of controversial remarks the previous day by former Governor Mitt Romney speaking about having been born in Michigan and Representative Todd Akin (R-MO) about continuing his Senate campaign. close
