I realize that Joe The Plumber is not named “Joe”, he’s not a plumber and he lied about planning to buy a plumbing business. That aside, it’s amazing how his ignorance about business and taxes has been bandied about by McCain as a legitimate issue. Here’s a portion of “the transcript between him and Obama”:http://www.tampabay.com/news/perspective/article858299.ece:
bq. Joe: I’m getting ready to buy a company that makes about $250,000 … $270-$280,000 a year.
bq. Obama: All right.
bq. Joe: Your new tax plan’s gonna tax me more, isn’t it?
