• Here Are The 22 Words That Will Likely End Mark Pryor’s Political Career

    Days after Daily Surge publisher Jason Mattera confronted Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor (D) about his vote for Obamacare, the embattled incumbent said he thinks people in middle class America earn “up to $200,000.”

    Mark Pryor is down by about five points in his Senate reelection race against Arkansas Congressman and Iraq veteran Tom Cotton. And Pryor’s latest gaffetastic flub may be the nail in his campaign’s coffin.

    “When I think of the middle class I think of most of Arkansas, and maybe that goes up to $150,000 and $200,000,” Pryor said.

    With no official definition of the phrase “middle class” available, most commentators refer to it as those who earn 50 percent above or below the median yearly income. The American middle class earns somewhere between $25,500 and $76,500 per year. That’s far from what middle class means in Senator Mark Pryor’s world.

    Next time, Mark Pryor should just keep quite the same way he did when Jason Mattera confronted him about his support for Obamacare.
