Way back 2008 election, Senator John McCain, Governor Sarah Palin, and Joe the Plumber were the competitors of Barack Obama. Joe Wurzelbacher, also known as Joe the Plumber, was a plumber who entered as Republican icon right after his famous interaction with Barack Obama. However, it was already six years when this plumber interrupted Obama on the campaign targeting his tax plan.
Who is actually Joe Wurzelbacher?
Joe Wurzelbacher or popularly called as Joe the Plumber was categorized by the Republicans as the man that destroys the attempts of the Democrats in creating a socialist nation. Socialist nation is a kind of society in which the spread of wealth works highly and the national healthcare destroyed lives. However, Joe the Plumber is actually a plumber with doubtful certifications who prevented Obama in Ohio.
A report released by Sadoff Investment Research Firm of Wisconsin reveals that the American’s gap among the rich and the poor is just broadening and that the Obamacare granted healthcare only to those previously uninsured Americans. But, proofs are also available suggesting that it saves lives.
Joe the Plumber’s Road to Fame
Many people think that it was Barack Obama who put Joe the Plumber to fame. However, it was actually John McCain who placed him on the spotlight. This happened when McCain mentioned the name of Joe in his third presidential debate with Obama. The name dropping of McCain was not just once or twice, but the name of Joe was mentioned for about two dozen times. And this name dropping continue the next day and it was his way on how to get involved in politics.
Joe’s Action Reveals the Plumbers Being Anti-Obama
Due to his action, Joe seems to be not a big supporter of the tax plans of Obama. Yet, John McCain revealed that the plumber’s organization endorsed Obama during the election on 2008. Meanwhile, it shows that Joe is not actually a representative of the plumber’s society, like those plumber in London, due to the fact that he was not really a plumber.

Thomas Joseph of the Local 50 of the United Association of Plumbers, Steamfitters and Service Mechanics explained that Joe did not achieve the license needed to practice the plumber professional. This was later on confirmed by Joe and clearly stated that he worked despite of the absence of a license.
