Joe Wurzelbacher, the GOP candidate against 15-term Ohio Democratic congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, has brought his new wife into the political campaign.
Katie Wurzelbacher's comments on the Supreme Court's health care decision are the subject of a fund-raising appeal the campaign sent out Thursday:
The letter says the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the health care law and categorize it as a tax "proves more than ever how serious the President was when he uttered those words to Joe, who was playing catch with his son and contemplating his and our future."
"ObamaCare is now officially what we always knew it was: the largest and most far-reaching middle class tax increase in American history. It's a massive transfer of our economy from the private sector into the hands of government," she writes.
Obama was trying to explain his plans to raise taxes on family incomes over $200,000 and individual incomes over $250,000 when he told Wurzelbacher, in an unscripted confrontation on Wurzelbacher's suburban Toledo street in October, 2008, that if you "spread the wealth around it's good for everybody."
