    As more and more Americans, in particular the Middle Class realizes the true cost of Cain's 9-9-9 with their check-to-check economic environment, Cains numbers will drop like a rock. But then maybe not. Maybe some folks in the Middle Class will think it's great that they get to pay taxes at a higher rate the the rich folks.

    Cain's 9-9-9 is by no means set in stone as a slam dunk and would receive and need full consideration and amendement by Congress.

    I, like more and more Americans, support Cain's initiative and balls to propose something toward bucking the status quo and spreading Federal taxation more fairly across the economic spectrum.

    If Cain picked JC Watts as his running mate - which would be extremely awesome - Liberals would be jumping off fucking buildings!

    You mean if you collect 25,000 a year you should not help by paying 2250 in taxes? that is not much more than state taxes in the N.E.

    You also have created a 27% income for the wealthy that that own a small business, they would jump all over it

    Job creation would go out of control. I would have had 100,000-120,000 more to have spent in the last 20 years, I am not rich
    I pay sales tax in Florida and Texas now

    Under a flat or fair tax...or Cain's 999...no one would pay a higher income tax than anyone else. Why do you say the middle class would pay at a higher rate?

    I agree...

    Republicans would be crazy not to run Cain against Obama

    No way Obama could defeat him

    The differences between Obama, Romney, and Cain do not appear to be statistically significant. Which one might find surprising, except that earlier polls have found largely the same thing.

    Polls have to be taken carefully. Remember when Trump was a leading GOP contender? I think Cain would be a much weaker challenger than Romney in the general election.
