Joe Wurzelbacher aka Joe the Plumber recaps his chat with Barack Obama on how the Obama Tax Plan will impact him as a small business owner.

When interviewed on Your World with Neil Cavuto, Joe the Plumber was asked whether Obama won him over.

Joe the Plumber: “No, not at all. The answer actually scared me even more. He said he wants to distribute wealth, and I’m not trying to make statements here, but that’s kind of a Socialist viewpoint.”


Mark Ambinder of The Atlantic points out that Joe the Plumber is still uncommitted. However, since Joe the Plumber stated that Barack Obama’s tax plan “infuriates me,” I’d imagine he is leaning in one direction.
