Take from the plummer give to the bum

Hat Tip: Patriot Room
Obama Tells a plumber he's going to share his wealth

  1. I'll have to take Fox News' word on it that this is a plumber, but if his taxes are going up under an Obama administration, then he's a plumber making more than $250,000/yr. I'm thinking he's less a plumber and more the owner of a plumbing company if he's making that kind of dough.

    But I do like the subtlety of calling him a plumber though, as opposed to noting that he must be sitting in the top 1 percent of earners. It makes him seem like he's middle class, which he's obviously not, unless he's just really misinformed about Obama's tax plan.

    I also like how apparently the only people who will benefit under Obama's policies are bums. I work for a living and pay my own bills, but I'll benefit from a universal health care plan, which is the primary target for those increased revenues.

    And for the record, I'm not a bum.

  2. Obviously, Big Blue has never had to the opportunity to risk his/her own money and/or home to invest in a small business. If he/she did, he/she would realize the difference between gross income and taxable income. Small business owners do ‘spread the wealth’ by employing over 40% of non-government workers. I have met few small business owners who do not devote 60 to 70 hours per week to their work. It really angers me when Sen. Obama refers to the ‘working class’ as if, I as a small business owner myself, do not work for the income that I earn. Any tax increase that my business is subject to, whether federal, state, or local are passed on to the consumer, if the market is tolerable to higher prices. If, as in most cases, the market cannot bear an increase in product prices, I have to cut back in my largest non-fixed expense, employees. The ‘spread the wealth’ rhetoric sounds reasonable when it is eloquently communicated by Sen. Obama, but since he too has never worked for or owned a private sector, for profit business he would not know the results of implementing the rhetoric.

    BigBlue – hope your new universal healthcare plan helps you pay for your more expensive bills and for unemployment counseling, ‘cause you’re gonna need it!
