No growth for you: Stephanie Cutter says ‘enter and stay in middle class,’ plebs

Well, lying liar who lies, Stephanie Cutter, is making the rounds again and made an appearance on MSNBC this morning.

Heh. It seems she spouted idiocy, as always: Don’t you dare have pesky dreams or aspirations, rubes. You’ll hit a plateau and like it. President Obama has a mandate for it, even!

Odd phrasing and a lack of reality, or simply once again saying what they actually believe out loud? Success is bad and all, if you can possibly even build that yourself anyway.

At a certain point, you’ve made enough money,” right President Obama? Deciding your level of pay is not above his pay grade, evidently.

    ooooh, this reminds me of CADIVI in venezuela where no citizen, except if they are goverment officials, is allowed to own more than a certain number of dollars and/or bolivares (normal or strong [yeah, they have 2 currencies, thats how bad they are])

  • TwitWit

    Since America’s ” middle-class” has never been more than a perceived status, will the Obama regime come out with an actual definition on what determines “middle-class”?

    • louisiana_mom

      Seeing how their definition of “millionaires and billionaires” is someone who makes $200,000/year… their definition of “middle class” is probably someone who makes $20,000/year…

      • stuckinIL4now

        It must be their diminished concept of millions and billions that makes them not blink at trillions.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        I heard the new poverty level in CA is less than 42,000/year.

      • KALKAM

        They hate hearing that a NYC public school teacher married to a fireman in the FDNY make over 250K per year as a couple…

        First they accuse you of lying, then after they realize it’s a fact they scramble for every stupid commie lovin excuse they can muster…

  • Lisa Dean

    I’m so thankful Obama has a “mandate” because he sure doesn’t have a clue about economics.

    • peteee363

      pehaps he thinks it means man date?

    Unless government handouts come with intangibles like a desire to work, the ability to perform the required services, and the sense to remain self sufficient, the government will NEVER be able to move people UP into the middle class…………..but they certainly have a knack for being able to move people DOWN into the middle class……….or lower!

  • vcferlita

    That is exactly what he wants.

  • peteee363

    i thought we were a classless society, where everybody can achieve any monetary level thier hard work would get them. now obama tells us, sorry charlie, no high earning potential for you. and a majority of people voted for this clown?

  • Josephine (D)

    The Communists believe in having just one big middle/working class, you know.

  • nc

    Steffi tells the truth for once. How many people, as individuals or businesses, that are close to that $250k line, are going to cross it?

  • Joseph Phillips

    Is that middle class for the United State – or the whole world? And when does Barry join the ranks of the middle class?

  • JRu4Life

    And how much does Cutter make? Waayyyyyy more than most of us serfs, I bet.

    • Marcy Cook

      It’s about time Cutter’s money was redistributed to us.

  • TocksNedlog

    Of course what she meant was “enter the middle class and NOT slide back into the lower class”; but then, that’s not how she said it, is it? Call it a Marxian slip.

  • Canadian in USA

    I can see a recurring theme. During the DNC in Charlotte, there were many movie stars (Scarlet Johansson and Eva Longoria, for example) who extolled the virtues of “being in the middle class” and how they’re proud of the “middle class life”. I thought to myself at the time, “well, if it’s so great, why didn’t you stay there”? It was almost as if they were saying,”get to the middle class and STAY there”.

    Or another way of putting it was, “I’ve got mine…you just stay where you are”.

    • SineWaveII

      yep, they’re the “pull-up-the-ladder-behind-us, socialists”

  • Silenttype78

    I love it when they tell us exactly what they want.

    • SineWaveII

      And wait for the other shoe….they will get to determine what constitutes “middle class” you can be sure, it’ll be much lower than where we are now.

      • Silenttype78

        You’re half right.
        I think this is actually “the other shoe”. The first was when they convinced slightly more than half of the U.S. that suddenly 250K = not just million,but billion.
        I blame public education. They teach reading without phonics…maybe they are teaching math without numbers.

  • SineWaveII

    I was hoping that with the election over we wouldn’t have to hear from StufFromThe Gutter anymore. I guess I was wrong. We seem to now be living in a perpetual campaign. It’s like we’ve died and been sent to some kind of weird hell.

  • Streetiebird

    Such a thorough “article” as usual Michelle. But, as usual, you left out the part you’re faux-outraged about:

    “His mandate is to protect the middle class and help people enter and stay in the middle class,” Cutter said. Adding that that means protecting programs like Medicaid.

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      Concern troll is concerned.

      • Streetiebird

        LOL your love for me knows no bounds apparently <3 Thanks Michelle!

        • Hello Jerry (D)

          Lame comeback. What else would I expect of a libtard POS like yourself.

          • Streetiebird

            I love you too Michelle <3

          • gr82cu2

            Am I the only one that think Streetiebird and George are the same person? Where one shows up, the other does too.

          • Streetiebird

            Who’s George?

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    Stephanocchio is proof you can sleep your way to the top.

  • Libertyship46

    Well of course Obama wants everyone to stay in the middle class. That’s what all socialists “want.” Unfortunately, the definition of what “middle class” is keeps changing and it usually gets lower and lower when people have less and less because of a lousy economy. So soon, to Obama the “middle class” will be anybody making $20,000 a year, which will entitle them to even more government benefits. I’ve never seen one president so interested in lowering the bar for future generations than Obama.

  • domremy03

    Thing is, Ms. Cutter isn’t lying. This is what she and the President believe.

  • BeeKaaay

    Under Obamanomics, the middle class is defined as “anyone not on welfare” at the rate that wages are dropping.

  • Spiffarino

    Enter and remain as opposed to “enter and drop out” of the middle class as most Americans have done for the last thirty years. Wage earners’ income growth has remained flat while those at the top 0.1% have increased by as much as 800% and more.

    But hey, don’t let that get in the way of this manufactured outrage. That’s what today’s so-called conservatives thrive on, perhaps because reality doesn’t fit well within the constructs of the modern GOP narrative.

    I miss conservatives. They lived in the reality-based world.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    And just who is holding a gun to your head making you listen to them……….or have you not yet figured out how to push a button and change a channel?

  • Andy Hebert

    Change your name…to Ima Troll.

  • Jillane Kent

    Awwww, someone wants the attention that his parents appear to have denied him

  • Marcy Cook

    Your spelling is off today George…drinking much?

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    Sorry, we don’t choose to listen to Madcow Maddow, Michael “The Hutt” Moore and Tingles Matthews like you do.


    I like to see what is like living w/brain damage, similar to why I come here…I kindah feel sorry for destroying you guys the way I do, but someone has to do it..


    If only someone would reply to me and give me that attention…Thanx Jill !

  • Fire and Adjust!

    If by saying ” you like seeing what it is like living w/ brain damage”, you mean listening to radio hosts who discuss topics far beyond your level of understanding thereby helping you to realize your own immediate lack of intellect………..yes, that is probably a good way…..although I suspect it is not too far from reality for you……….none the less, more power to you on your crusade to see the world through brain damaged eyes………..

  • Kyle McCoy

    I like watching you spiked kool-aid drinkers troll here and try to act intelligent. Go call someone on your Obamaphone. Enjoy your free healthcare at my expense. Know that a conservative provides for your every need. No thanks necessary. Now go get a brain transplant; yours is damaged from all of the MD 20/20 and Ripple.


    Thanks Bro..

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Your brain damage is showing in your poor grammar and spelling. I’m sure, however, that you attained your grade school level of reading comprehension (and stayed there) long before ever listening to Ann Coulter or Laura Ingraham.

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    No deal, douchenozzle.

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    Love it. “Mouth Breather” would be another good one for Tushie the Troll.

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    Cheeto deficiency.
