If you watched last night's (terrible) debate, you may recall the name (Joe the Plumber) was mentioned in excess of a million times. Joe was supposedly a modest, blue-collar independent, who was worried that he would be taxed at a higher rate under Obama's plan.... because he makes more than $250,000 a year (seriously). It turns out
a. Joe does not make more than 250,000 a year (surprise).
b.Joe is not an independent, but a registered Republican.
C. Joe owes about 1,200 in back taxes.
D. He is not, in fact, a licensed plumber.
