Can you comment on this WSJ article?

Article: http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2016/06/21/not-just-the-1-the-upper-middle-class-is-larger-and-richer-than-ever/?mod=e2fb My comment was: "When they say "the middle class is shrinking," they're right. But it's not because "the lower class is growing." This article shows that it's actually because "the upper middle class is growing" – and very rapidly. "As a representative of the "upper lower middle class," I want to suggest that we in the bottom 68% really need to think about what this means, and build bridges with that group, because they, perhaps even more than the 1% because of their relatively greater numbers, are a huge barrier to a more equitable society."
