If I hear another newscast about Joe the Plumber, I am going to lose my mind. Joe the plumber . . . does not really exist – there’s probably a dozen people in the same situation in America.
How many plumbers are faced with the problem of deciding whether or not to buy out the plumbing business they work for?
How many plumbing corporations even offer themselves for sale?
The entire premise is absolutely totally out to lunch.
Look, however somebody makes a quarter million dollars, they can afford to pay a little more in taxes than the rest of us.
If you don’t agree, as families live paycheck to paycheck . . . then you’re out to lunch as well
UPDATE: Turns out Joe the Plumber doesn’t even exist – at least in the sense that he will not make $250,000. Like I said . . . out to lunch.
UPDATE 3: Also looks like this genius is not registered to vote might be purged from voter rolls if he were a new voter because of a date entry error. Indeed, some people might attempt to purge him for “voter fraud.”
As most of you already know (I got home late) Joe the Plumber likes to criticize Obama for his tax plan, but he just hates taxes period (unless imposed by John McCain) – so he just doesn’t pay them.
Joe the plumber – also does not exist – because he’s not actually a plumber.
So can somebody tell me why anybody cares what’s on Joe-the-tax-owing-not-plumber-guy-who-gets-a tax-cut-from-Obama’s-plan-but-hates-it mind?
