5. I AM Joe the Plumber, or Josephine, if you will. I am a small
Edited on Wed Oct-15-08 10:06 PM by tsuki
business making less than 250K net that the Republican have been trying to run out of business for years. Oh, they want to lower my taxes, but they increase my "fees" every year.

"Fees" is just another name for taxes.

Now they want to take the 26,000 dollars I pay for my employees health care and subject it to matching Fica, Medicare, FUTA and SUI, plus higher insurance costs for liability and workers's compensation which are based on wages.

McCain is a lying POS.

Go Obama.

7. The guy with the Sarah Palin picture in his wallet....
He's a Rove creation... a fail ... I don't like plumbers. They always overcharge and have to come back to fix what they didn't get right the first time.

17. Yes, GROSS. But my net profit is far different from my gross profit.
Unlike the media and "Joe the Plumber," I know the difference between GROSS and NET. I have been in this biz for 30+ years.

16. McCain did himself no favors with his crazy Joe the Plumber...
rant. I also thought it was pretty condescending to "Joe," who probably has a last name.

In the only Reagan vs. Carter debate, Reagan quipped that he would put more money in the pocket of Joe the plumber.
