It all depends on where you live and how old you are.

I'd call it "working upper class", where people are still working long hard hours and couldn't just walk away...but I wouldn't compare families at $250,000 or $300,000 to the crowd making several million a year.

I'm think the Schumer plan might be the final compromise. Raising taxes only on the $1,000,000+ crowd. I'm not saying I like that, or think it will make a difference, but I think it has a better chance of passing than the $250,000 number. Of course the question also remains where will the cuts come from?
