If you watched last night’s debate, you heard Sen. John McCain mention the most famous plumber in America.

This video shows the brief exchange between the man the media has dubbed “Joe The Plumber” and Sen. Barack Obama. Their paths crossed while the senator campaigned door to door in Ohio this past Sunday.

The plumber’s real name is Joe Wurzelbacher, and he’s one of the 5% of upper middle class Americans earning over $250,000 per year who worry that Obama — if elected president — will raise their taxes to “spread the wealth around” to the poor and disenfranchised.

Joe Plumber: “Your new tax plan is going to tax me more. Isn’t it?”

Obama: “It’s not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

Their brief exhange is resonating with the upper middle class, especially small business owners who will be hit hardest if Obama raises their taxes.

Critics charge Obama is a Marxist whose goal is to redistribute the wealth evenly between the rich and the poor like a modern day Robin Hood.
