    Liberal commentators have been stating that Cain's 9-9-9 plan is attacking the poor because of the 9% sales tax. So I looked it up and all the top ten cities in highest sales tax are liberal cities. Liberals are admitting they are attacking the poor.

    1. Birmingham, AL (10%)
    2. Montgomery, AL (10%)
    3. Long Beach, CA (9.75%)
    4. Los Angeles, CA (9.75%)
    5. Oakland, CA (9.75%)
    6. Fremont, CA (9.75%)
    7. Chicago, IL (9.75%)
    8. Glendale, AZ (9.6%)
    9. Seattle, WA (9.5%)
    10. San Francisco, CA (9.5%).

    In Washington state, there is no sales tax on food. And Cain's 9-9-9 Sim City plan would have been on top of already existing taxes, creating a much greater tax burden on the working poor and the middle class, while at the same time, creating a huge tax break for the very rich.

    In other words, you are full of shit.

    You can't even google? Check the demographics for Birmingham and Montgomery before you project your ignorance on to someone else.

    Well why don't those liberal cities drop the sales tax and just tax the rich? It must be because they are out for the poor. The poor only buy food?
