Tri-City Plumbers React To "Joe The Plumber" and The Presidential Debate

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- If you watched Wednesday night's Presidential debate you already know about Joe the Plumber, and raising his taxes.

On Thursday, we wanted to hear from our own plumbers here in the Tri-Cities. We caught up with a few from Cray Plumbing, working at Kennewick General Hospital.

The issue is Obama's plan to raise taxes for people making over $250,000 a year. While McCain says raising anybody's taxes is not a good idea.

The owner of Cray Plumbing says he definitely doesn't want higher taxes.

"I don't want to pay more taxes, that's a fact," said Tim Cray, Owner of Cray Plumbing in Kennewick.

"Docking me for making more than 250,000 doesn't seem fair, doesn't seem right," said Cray.

"My boss, he's the one who's in that category so that directly affects me," said Roy Ficek, a plumber for Cray Plumbing.

"Anything that he would make over 250,000 would be taxed a lot more heavily than he is taxed," said Ficek.

Both plumbers say they agree with McCain's policy on taxes, over Obama's.
