Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden was skeptical about the now-famous Joe Plumber in an appearance on NBC this morning.

"I don't have any 'Joe the Plumbers' in my neighborhood that make $250,000 a year and are worried," Biden said dismissing complaints a plumber named Joe Wurzelbacher of Toledo, Ohio made to Barack Obama about Obama's tax plan while meeting the presidential candidate at a campaign stop.

Joe told Obama he'd like to buy his plumbing business, but under Obama's plan that would increase his taxes dramatically since the business is worth more than $250,000 a year.
