Joe The Plumber

Posted on October 19, 2008. Filed under: News | Tags: , , , , , |

He is an average American earning a decent living but he had the American dreams of becoming his own entrepreneur one day by buying up a business that currently employs him which may make more than $250,000.00 in a year. It was a hypothetical question.

He became famous when John McCain used him as an example of what he would lose if Barrack Obama is elected president of the USA during the third debate between them.

Joe Wurzelbacher (real name – Samuel J. Wurzelbacher ),met Barack Obama as the Democratic presidential nominee campaigned door-to-door in Ohio. Wurzelbacher’s tete-a-tete with Obama was caught on video.

“Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn’t it?” Wurzelbacher asked.

Obama said that under his proposal taxes on any revenue from $250,000 on down would stay the same, but that amounts above that level would be subject to a 39 percent tax, instead of the current 36 percent rate.

This seems like an innocuous question to seek the truth from the lion’s mouth. There is nothing wrong with that. But after his point was highlighted by John McCain , the Obama people and those liberal MSM (main Stream media) descended on Joe the plumber and dug out all his dirt to discredit him .

He was even mocked by Obama and Biden and I think he does not deserve such a response .He was just asking a simple question and a truthful answer would have suffice. Anything more than that reflects badly on those people who cannot accept others views.

The elitist and liberal MSM have been very bias against McCain and Sarah Palin. Like the MSM here which reported the rosy news due to their vested interest or selfish agenda , the government lost 5 states to the opposition in this recent elections.

On Nov 4th, we will know the real results and the people will vote with their conscience.
