The Messiah, to counter the Joe the Plumber firestorm recently said that he had never met a plumber that made 250 thousand dollars.
Setting aside the fact “Joe” never said it, (he was looking at the possibility of owning his own business that would then make that much scratch, in other words obama lied!) Tommy the Plumber has a few choice words for the Messiah:
“I’ve made that,” said Tommy Kimmons, owner of Kimmons Plumbing. “I know a lot of other plumbers that have made more than that. We are already taxed to the death and you want to throw some more on us, especially in these economical times. People are going to be laying people off.”
As long as I’m making introductions, Messiah, meet Dave the Building Contractor.
Dave McCartney of McCartney Improvement Co. in Davenport, argued Obama’s tax policies would hurt small businesses like his.
McCartney said higher taxes on his profits cut back on the money he has to invest in new equipment and to expand his business or hire more people.
The company employs 13 full-time employees as well as additional sub-contractors.
“The economy’s already starting to slow, and we’re feeling it,” McCartney said.
McCartney also said a mandate that small businesses provide health care to their workers could cause him to trim his work force, a characterization of Obama’s health care plan that the campaign said was false.
The Obama campaign said Obama’s plan would not require small businesses to provide health care coverage to their workers.
As expected some nitwit in the Messiah’s campaign blew over anything directly related to what McCartney has to say and let lose with usual bilge of talking points we’ve heard a thousand times – times ten.
“Barack Obama understands the challenges facing hardworking Iowans like me,” Friedhof said. “As president, he will cut taxes for 95 percent of all workers and help small businesses succeed in this struggling economy. While John McCain wants to continue President Bush’s tax cuts for big corporations and their wealthy CEOs, Barack Obama will cut taxes for middle class families.”
Friedhof, you can take that crapola and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine, and Messiah talking points reside.
