McCain Asks Joe to Be White House Plumber

with 4 comments

John McCain has contacted Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher about joining him on the campaign trail.  “I talked to him this morning for the first time ever,” said McCain. “And I want to tell you his sprits are good and he’s a tough guy. He is what small business people all over this country are all about. They are tough and they are good and they want to get ahead and they want to keep their money.”

It is like McCain is talking about me.  The only difference, of course, is that I have never had the courage of my conviction to refuse to pay my taxes like Joe has.  Joe the Plumber and John McCain are a natural fit.  Throughout the campaign John McCain has been talking out about the strict licensing procedures which keep Nobel Prize winners from teaching in our Elementary Schools and it turns out that McCain also wants our Nobel Prize winners to become plumbers without being licensed—Just like Joe.

While a Joe Sixpack like Wurzelbacher is trying to get by on $250,000 a year, he knows that come January Obama will most likely raise his taxes.  This amounts to socialism.  Why should the wealthy pay more taxes just because they have more money and the middle class is actually making less money than they did in 1980 when adjusted for inflation?  The government has no right to ask us to bail out poor people.

It isn’t like the wealthy don’t pay taxes either.  The top 5% of this country pay 60% of the income tax burden despite owning only about 95% of the country’s assets.  Working men like Joe and I don’t want socialism in this country except when it involves propping up our financial institutions or large banks.
