During the 2008 election campaign, Joe the plumber came to symbolize small business owners that would be hit with increases in marginal tax rates under Obama's tax plan.
(actual quote)
Joe the plumber asked, "I'm getting ready to buy a (plumbing) company that makes about $250, $280 thousand a year. Your new tax plan is going to tax me more isn't it?"
Obama responded, "... when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."
