FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) - Sarah Palin has a new nickname for Barack Obama -- Barack the wealth spreader.

Palin spoke to supporters at a rally this morning at the University of Findlay, not far from the northwest Ohio home of Joe the Plumber.

The Republican vice presidential nominee says she and John McCain want to cut taxes and let people decide to do with their money. She reiterated a line that Obama's plan to "spread the wealth" sounds like socialism.

Joe Wurzelbacher became famous after he told Obama earlier this month in Holland, Ohio, that the Democrat's tax proposal could keep him from buying the two-man plumbing company where he works.

He wasn't on the stage with Palin even though campaign officials say he has a standing invitation to join them.
