PatriotPost.US, 08-42 Wurzelbacher, now simply known as â€œJoe the Plumber,â€ has been thrust into the spotlight as â€œeverymanâ€ representing the people who want to live the American Dreamâ€”all because he questioned Barack Obama about his tax plan at a rally this week. He didnâ€™t believe that Obama was truthful when he stated in the second presidential debate, â€œOnly a few percent of small businesses make more than $250,000 a year. So the vast majority of small businesses would get a tax cut under my plan.â€ But Obama reassured him, â€œItâ€™s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that theyâ€™ve got a chance for success too. I think when you spread the wealth around, itâ€™s good for everybody.â€ Thatâ€™s known around our humble shop as â€œtrickle up poverty.â€ In fact, most people who taste success the hard way, through entrepreneurship, would indeed be hit with extra expenses by Obamaâ€™s governmentâ€”and not just in higher taxes, but also by being forced to provide health insurance to employees. Further, the definition of â€œsmall businessâ€ varies by type: according to the Small Business Administration a â€œsmall businessâ€ can have up to $33 million in receipts, easily exceeding the $250,000 threshold. One of Barackâ€™s promises, that 95 percent of taxpayers are promised a tax cut, is a grand piece of misinformation that would make Josef Stalin proud. Forty percent of Americans already pay no income tax whatsoever and thus would simply be the beneficiaries of increased income redistribution. Itâ€™s yet another chance for Democrats to ensnare people into government dependence. And the $250,000 figure is only for couples. Individuals would have to make only $200,000 to be slapped with higher taxes. Finally, lest we forget, Obama has promised to â€œroll back the Bush tax cuts.â€ Translation: higher taxes for everyone, rich and poor alike. As for Joe, his fame has earned him the scrutiny of the Leftmedia for daring to question their messiah. The New York Times carried a front-page hit piece about him today. So itâ€™s official: The Times has now spent more time investigating the plumber from Toledo than they have the senator from Illinois.
