Joe the Plummer seems to be in the spotlight this political season. He's been on the today show and even on Katie Couric's show. Man, I bet he's pretty excited that Obama came to his house.
Biden said, "I don't know any plumbers that earn $250,000 in my neighborhood."
That's the point exactly. He doesn't make $250,000. He said he wanted to buy a business that would put him in that bracket. He said he doesn't want to do it if his taxes would be so high he couldn't afford to make a go of it.
So, the entire point of Joe the Plummer is that you can't just draw the line at $250,000 and say anyone making more than that will get a tax hike, because $250,000 is not a lot of money, especially if you are a person like Joe the Plummer trying to make a go of it.
Note, just because you make $50,000, or $100,000, or $250,000 or even $300,000 does not mean you are rich and are in a spot where you can afford a tax hike. It's only liberals (note I did not say democrats) who think this.
Biden proves the point that I've been trying to make the past few days, that you cannot say that rich people deserve to "spread the wealth," as Obama told Joe the other day when he went to his house looking for votes.
If you say this, then you have to draw the line somewhere, and Obama has drawn the line at $250,000. So, according to Obama's definition of rich, that would include any person making over this amount -- whether you are rich or not.
I know my dad had a business for years and I know he probably made that kind of money. But, when all was said and done with all the bills paid, wages spread out, salaries spread out, and taxes, he made just an average income.
Heck, there were some years he made less than the people working for him. But, according to Obama, he would have been rich. I have never even owned a business and I know this.
I'm so tired of writing about this. But, as the polls seem to be tightening as the election draws near, people seem to be realizing that Obama just doesn't get the economy enough.
His conversation with Joe the Plummer is case in point how he has no clue. Obama is not just left of left, he's left, left, left, left, left of left.
