mawhinney asks,

When financial and tax "experts" refer to the rich or wealthy as in statements such as "this will only affect the rich" or "this only pretains to the rich" or "only the wealthy will be affected", exactly who are they talking about? Do such statements refer to an individual's tax bracket? What dollar figure or net worth figure entitles one to be labeled wealthy?

You won't find an absolute figure. Most people consider "the rich" to be anyone who has one dollar more than they have.
