Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, or Joe the Plumber, gained notoriety during the 2008 presidential race when candidates Barack Obama and John McCain used his words in their debate attacks.
Now, Joe is going after the IRS by putting out a TV commercial and starting a phone, text message, and Internet petition calling for the IRS to be abolished.
Joe got the idea after a friend showed him how the same method works on American Idol.
Joe says, If people call in to vote for a singer, I think theyd vote to improve their country. The tax code needs to work better for U.S. citizens and not the elite few on Capital Hill.
He also accuses the IRS of convoluting the tax law so average Americans cant understand where their money is going, and is doing his part to put an end to it.
