    Under fire, Herman Cain modifies '9-9-9' plan

    Under fire, Herman Cain modifies '9-9-9' plan - latimes.com
    Herman Cain's "9-9-9" tax plan lost some its trademark simplicity today when the Republican presidential hopeful carved out a sales tax exemption for the poor.

    "We"re not going to throw the people at the poverty level under the bus," Cain told an audience at the Western Republican Leadership Conference. "No, we're not going to do that. But we've already made provisions for that. But I just hadn't told the public and my opponents about it yet. So we're going to take care of those who are less economically advantaged."

    Cain offered no details on how he would spare the poor from the federal sales tax.

    How do you make a sales tax exception? One that favors the poor. Does the poor get a special card that they can scan that free's them from paying it. :confused::confused:

    It's all such a bunch of honk and jive at this point.

    The Republican candidates need to take a cue from Obama's early campaign days- speak in lofty generalized tones, affford everything but promise nothing, and appeal to the dumbest fuckers on two legs. Works for Democrats every time.

    I could see how it could be workable...All poor would get a "special" card that they would scan when they buy something, which would free them from paying the tax. This new card could also be used for duel purposes, which can be food stamps, any government aid, ect. This I bet would mean a major growth in government to hand them out and to handle the organization of such. NOT A REPUBLICAN idea of smaller government.:lol::lol::lol: This he is suggesting is a national sales tax, so it would have to be national get out of tax card.

    Cain's plan is huge. :eusa_whistle:
