Alex Sink campaigns for Obama's small business tax plans listen10/17/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
John McCain was in Miami today, where he attacked Barack Obama on taxes.
The GOP is trying to seize on Obamaâ€™s remark to â€œJoe the plumber,â€ Joseph Wurzelbacher from Holland, Ohio, when Obama said "he wants to spread the wealth around."
McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt told the New York Times today that that was a mistake by Obama, as did Newt Gingrich on Good Morning America today.
In reality, based on what his salary is, Wurzelbacher would get a tax cut, not a raise from Obamaâ€™s plan. But Democrats have traditionally had trouble in national elections for being labeled as tax and spend liberals.
WMNF asked Floridaâ€™s Chief Financial Officer and Obama supporter Alex Sink today if she feared those charges could hurt Obama in Florida. Weâ€™ll hear more from her next week on Floridaâ€™s challenging economic times.
