Obama Reels in Big Plumbing

ROANOKE, VA -- Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is tapping into Americans' anxiety over the economy by going after plumbers who make over $250,000 annually.

"I'll make plumbers pay a tax on their windfall profits, and we'll use the money to help families pay for their skyrocketing toilet paper costs and others bills," he told supporters.

Obama charged that Republican candidate John McCain's support for extending President Bush's tax cuts means he is in favor of plumbers' greed.

"For the well-off in this country, plumbing prices are mostly an annoyance. But to most Americans, plumbing is a huge problem, bordering on a crisis. We can't have the fat cats getting rich off your backs. Enough is enough."
