He is a tradesman who has worked 12-hour shifts for years and now plans to buy his own small plumbing business. The trouble for Joe the plumber is that this would take his earnings to more than $250,000 - making him a target of Obama’s plan to tax the wealthy.
The vast majority of small businesses don't make more than $250,000 a year. Under Obama, most small businesses will see a tax cut and a tax credit. This all said, if it's a sole proprietorship, partnership, or S-corp, I doubt that Joe is making $250,000 a year after paying salaries and bills so actually he'd fit into the less than $250,000 after paying expenses and would get the tax cut and small business tax credit from Obama!! By the way, The average plumber makes $45,000 a year according to CNBC and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
And he's anti-social security!! He called it a joke, says he never believed in it and doesn't like it and wants to invest it however he wants. The problem Joe is that if everyone had done that as Bush and McCain (and you) wanted us to do then we'd all have lost it by now thanks to this horrible Bush/McCain economy!! Duh!!
And after all of Joe's bitching, he isn't even registered to vote!! And in response to McCain saying he isn't Bush at last nights debate?
