Joe the Plumber makes $40K/yr., his business $100K/yr.

Like Atrios, I don’t think “Joe the Plumber” needs to have his life investigated. I don’t care about his name, or his license…the relevant information is his income and how he’d fare under Obama’s tax rates. The answer? Says “Joe”:

“I would, if you believe him, I would be receiving his tax cuts,” Wurzelbacher said.

Now Joe is a registered Republican and McCain supporter, so I expect the reluctant response, but this renders everything McCain said about “Joe the Plumber” to be complete horseshit.

This is not a surprise.
