McCain Says Joe The Plumber Won Last Night

John McCain said he did OK last night, but the winner of last nights debate was Joe the plumber. “He won and small businesses won across America. They won because the American people are not going to let Senator Obama raise their taxes in a tough economy. They are not going to let them do it, my friends,” McCain old a crowd in Philadelphia. “Small businesses provide 16 million jobs in America and Americans know that raising taxes on small business will kill those jobs at a time when we need to be creating more jobs.” McCain also questioned Obama about telling Joe the plumber he wanted to spread the wealth around. McCain said, “Now what does that mean? He wants government to take Joe’s money and give it to somebody else-his hard earned dollars. We are not gonna stand for that. America didn’t become the greatest nation on earth by spreading the wealth. We became the greatest nation on earth by creating new wealth.” “We cannot spend the next four years as we have spent much of the last eight: waiting for our luck to change. As I mentioned last night to Senator to Obama. I’m not George Bush and if he wanted to run against George Bush he should have run four years ago,” McCain said repeating the line he used last night. Joe Biden was on the Today Show casting doubt that Joe the plumber even existed. You notice John continues to cling to the notion of this guy Joe the plumber,” Biden said. “I don’t have any Joe the plumbers in my neighborhood that make $250,000 a year that are worried.” Biden went on to say, “Joe the plumbers in my neighborhood, the Joe the cops in my neighborhood, the Joe the grocery store owners in my neighborhood — they make, like 98 percent of the small businesses, less than $250,000 a year, and they’re going to do very well under us, and they’re going to be in real tough shape under John McCain.”
