Almost EVERYONE is ignoring the simple fact that Cain's 9% corporate taxes will eliminate what corporations deduct and require 9% tax payment. For the FACTS check this table from the IRS: http://www.irs.gov/taxstats/article/0,,id=170544,00.html In 2008 5,847,221 corporate tax returns showed: Reported gross receipts: $28.568 trillion Total deductions 27.686 trillion Net Income .984 trillion Income subject to tax .978 trillion Total income tax after credits: 228.5 billion or 23% of income taxed! But under Cain's 9% ... Estimates are nearly $2 trillion sits in cash or offshore assets by corporations that paid the 23% taxes. Assume $1 trillion is put back into the economy. Assumed by hiring 8 million people at $40k and the remaining spent in the economy... The multiplier affect of 1.18 would generate another $200 billion in tax revenue! But detractors of 9-9-9 haven't considered that!
