***I was under the impression he was a license plumber but that it doesn't even matter.
***Correct. I just keep hearing that he has been on right wing talk shows and that his father is a huge donor to the republican party and everything that was coming out of his mouth today on the news just seemed like it was right out of a McCain campaign note book. "Social Security being a joke etc...
***It has been reported that he made about 40k last year.
***With the economic crisis though clearly the policies of the last 8 years have not worked and McCains plan has very little differences compared to Bush's. Major tax cuts for major corporations, Big tax cuts for millionaires, etc... The people who can use the tax cuts are the same people who make up most of this country while the people who would be getting taxed a bit more could afford to. I happen to fit within that 95% of people that Obama would cut taxes for...so I may be a bit biased.
***At the same time raising minimum wage helps many people to put food in their families stomachs...it is circular the way things work.
***Correct...it is just that McCain used him so much it just seemed suspect, and after hearing him speak today I just couldn't help but feel there is something off about the whole thing with this guy.
***This is the initial article I read about the whole situation.
my research led me to this site which admittedly seems very left.
To be honest with you...I do not even care all that much, but...after hearing the guys name in the media all day...I just had to know what was goin on there...I feel like there is just enough suspicion surrounding Joe that it makes this seem like a not so good stunt from McCain.
I am so over this election. I just want to vote and be done with it.
