Joe ‘the Plumber’ Wurzelbacher says his campaign for Congress is “about getting the American worker back to work.”

“The focus is something that is going to benefit everybody — union, non-union, Republican, and Democrat. It comes down to jobs. The way I see things happening is tax reform and regulations,” Wurzelbacher told Newsmax.TV during an exclusive interview.

He said he decided to run for office because he has lost faith in elected officials.

Story continues below video.




“I just don’t trust politicians. That’s all that’s running, people that have a desire to ultimately live off the gravy train that is Washington, D.C. They’ll sell their grandmother, they’ll sell themselves, they’ll sell their soul, and they’ll sell their constituents to get that job.”

Wurzelbacher, who got his first taste of fame when he sternly questioned then candidate Barack Obama in 2008, recently won a tough Republican primary contest in Ohio’s ninth Congressional district. He’s challenging Democrat Rep. Marcy Kaptur who is heavily favored to win the general election. That’s not discouraging Wurzelbacher.

“We plan on using her [Kaptur] experience against her,” he said.

“If you drive around my district, there are factories that have closed down. Buildings closed down. Families being separated ultimately because they can’t find any work here.

Wurzelbacher said, “we need to stop having the federal government subsidize things off the backs of the American tax payer. That’s my message.”

“Too often the federal government has gotten involved in the private market. So my main focus is pull the government out of the private market and let the consumers, you and me, drive the market.

“I can’t be bought. I will not work for the parties. I’ll work for the American people. That’s what it comes down to,” Wurzelbacher said.
