Isn't it a Freudian slip by the rich like yourself that you think you are in a separate class (of the rich) rather than you are part of the nation as a whole rich and none rich?
Being you believe that you are in a separate higher class, you start to enroll yourself in the clique of the top class against all others.
Clinton handed the Republicans a budget surplus without any yearly deficits. The Republicans ended the eight years of Bush Republican administration totally squandering not only the surplus, but creating huge deficits with unfunded wars, and the 2008 Great Recession. Now, the Republicans want the middle class, and the poor to pay down the deficits and damages the Republicans caused, while the Republicans refuse to help pay anything for the deficits and damages the Republicans caused.
It is a Freudian slip that you admitted that you are in a class of the rich, rather than you are in a class of all Americans.
