Joe Wurzelbacher, an Ohio man who came to symbolize the notion of spreading the wealth in third and final presidential debate between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain.

A man from Ohio named Joe Wurzelbacher. Joe the Plumber was used by Barack Obama and John McCain in third and final presidential debate to represent the working middle class of America.
"Joe the Plumber wants to buy the business that he has been in for all of these years, worked 10, 12 hours a day..."

- John McCain

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."

None of these entries are fully correct. Joe the Plumber is the plumber mentioned by John McCain in the third presidential debate. Joe is actually a plumber from Toledo, Ohio. His name is Joe Wurzelbacher, and he owns a small plumbing business. He does an excellent job at plumbing, and he is worried about his small business's future if Barack Obama is elected president. However, Barack Obama is the man!
Joe the plumber came all the way from Toledo, Ohio to Wheeling, West Virginia once just to fix my leaky faucet

A plumber of 12 years who demostrated concern to Obama since he wanted to purchase his plumbing business which made more than $250,000/year, and would thus be subject to higher taxes under Obama's tax plan. He claimed that the increase in taxes stopped him from pursuing the business since he wouldn't be able to afford his workers. In the third presidential debate, McCaine referenced Joe the Plumber to express how Obama's tax reform will affect small business owners like Joe. This caused a lot of media attention towards "Joe the Plumber", and Joe Biden recently expressed his lack of concern towards "Joe the Plumber" by saying most plumbers do not make $250,000/year.
Joe the Plumber is an example of how middle class citizens will be affected by Obama's tax plan, but he makes up for a minority of small business owners-- according to Obama, 98% of small business makes less than $250,000/year
