People like to accuse Republicans, and especially John McCain, of being out of touch.
I just saw Barack Obama at a rally today (on TV, I wasn't there) and he said "How many plumbers do you know who make $250,00??
Well, I don't know when the last time Obama or Michelle called a plumber (probably never), but they charge a lot of money, Barack.
And, the plumbers who run those companies who send the individual plumbers to your house almost certainly make over $250,000. Those guys, once their income is confiscated to redistribute to those who still are behind, will stop hiring those guys.
So, poor plumbers, you'll have a nice little middle class tax cut, but you won't have a job.
At least you can take solace in the fact that Obama will extend your unemployment benefits for a longer time and that minimum wage job you're forced to take at McDonalds pays a few pennies more than it does now.
