Joe the plumber is my husband....not literally but they are symbolic of the same person.
They work hard for their money,they save when they can and invest when they can.They want to pay their mortgage on time and do not depend on credit cards to bail them out.All they want is something put aside for retirement and something to be able to give their children for the future.
Most small business owners do not have retirement benefits or health care.We did not till we thought that my husband may be diabetic,I still dont have health care.We really cant afford it.
There is a reason we dont like"share the wealth".We work hard for our money and we want to keep what little we have, not enable someone who is healthy and should be looking for a job.
Its not fair.
It literally breaks my heart to think of what will happen if Obama comes into office and implements this policy.I dont want a handout.I want to go to sleep knowing that the reason I am tired is because I worked hard that day(or rather my husband did)
