    Perry detailed his tax and economic plan in todays WSJ. It is an excellent plan. I am sure someone will find something to carp over, but really there is nothing. It is much stronger than Cain's 9-9-9 plan. And Perry was right when he said "Brother, I'll put my plan up against yours any day."

    More at the source.
    And I'll take odds some people responding will not have read the article.

    It's a laughable budget buster.

    For starters, with bigger standard deductions, under Perry's plan, a family of four making 50,000

    would pay ZERO in federal income tax.

    Let's see how the 'skin in the game' crowd likes that.

    It sounds good on paper but much like 9-9-9 do you think he could get it passed by those Clowns in congress??

    Income earned out of the country is tax free? Why? Seems an incentive to move more jobs overseas. Income tax must be progressive, a flat tax will create a "landed gentry" and finish our nations devoluiton (de-evolution) to a nation of halfs and half-nots.

    Some of the ideas in the Op-Ed make sense, others are foolish. The fact remains if the tax code is rewritten, it will be rewritten by a Congress beholden to the power elite who have bought and paid every member of Congress. Unless and until CU v. FEC is rescinded we are and will continue to be a Plutocracy, a nation where the rich and powerful write and enforce the laws.

    Remember when Obama was campaigning against NAFTA? Remember when he said he'd have it "re-negotiated" but after he got in office he never did any such thing?

    That is what "Gardasil" Rick is doing now. "If I'm elected I'll do this and that!" But he never will. And if you think just kicking out Obama and electing a Republican will change ANYTHING you're sorely mistaken. When will you fuckin' people learn?

    Rick Perry is an Algore Global Warming loving, Illegal Alien coddling, North American Union supporter. It's also my opinion that he's STILL a Democrat as well, just look at his record, not what he's SAID, look at what he's done.

    Rabbi, if you support Rick Perry, then you are a Liberal Democrat.

    I've only said about a thousand times on this board that I believe the People should have to pay for the government they get, when they get it.

    When did you stop caring about fiscal responsibility?

    It's a knee slapping joke. Perry's flat tax is optional, you can pay it or pay the way you're paying now,

    which means for starters you'll have to do your taxes TWICE to figure out which is better for you.

    lolol. Simplicity.
