Some how the Republican party have convinced people that one day they will be rich and that they should vote against their best interest today to prepare. This is crazy and Joe the Plumber is a perfect example of this craziness. Joe told Obama many lies in less than 30 sec. If Joe the Plumber ever woke up from his dream he would realize that all of the things he told Obama that was important to him Obama's plan would better serve him, but he will no doubt vote against his own best interest. How could this be?
Joe is in a fantasy world. Joe the Plumber lied to Obama and said “I’m getting ready to buy a company that makes $250,000 to $280,000 a year,” “Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn’t it?” According to some tax analysts, if Mr. Wurzelbacher’s gross receipts from his business is $250,000 — and not his taxable income — then he would not have to pay higher taxes under Mr. Obama’s plan, and probably would be eligible for a tax cut. Also the business he currently works at only grossed about $100K last year and will get a tax cut with Obama's plan and this benefits Joe the Plumber and the business owner. Joe the Plumber has a lot to learn about business.
Joe the Plumber is a lier and lies to himself to believe that McCains tax plan would be better for him. “All contractors are licensed, and he does not have a license, either as a contractor or a plumber,” the union official said, citing a search of government records. “I can’t find that he’s ever even applied for any kind of apprenticeship, and he has never belonged to local 189 in Columbus, which is what he claims on his Facebook page.” Joe the Plumber needs to become more motivated, get a license and begin an apprenticeship program before he should buy a plumbing business. Joe the Plumber only earned about $40K last year. I'm no business Guru but I would think he would have to earn more than that to buy a business worth $250K.
According to public records, Mr. Wurzelbacher has been subject to two liens, each over $1,000, one of which — a personal tax lien — is still outstanding. This leads me to believe that Joe the Plumber is not really worried about paying taxes
“We have his named spelled W-O, instead of W-U,” Linda Howe, executive director of the Lucas County Board of Elections, said in a telephone interview. “Handwriting is sometimes hard to read. He has never corrected it in his registration card.” It would be ironic if Joe the Plumber would be purged for the voter roles because of this. Joe would have to live in an area that is likely to vote for Obama for that to happen.
Why would someone vote against their own best interest? Even more disturbing, why would someone create a fantasy that would justify voting againt their own best interest? Everyone please wake up and be honest with yourself. Most of you are like Joe and do not have the means, motivation or the intelligence to become rich. The Republicans have nothing to offer you. Live your normal life and be happy. Joe the Plumber is INSANE!
