    o'shit...There is a lot of things to consider when considering this, but the one part of it I do agree with is the corporate tax to 9 percent. That would help our economy greatly. But I was reading a blog post that it could bring in a Vat tax, which would be bad.

    Not the 9-9-9 plan per se, but yeah, probably.

    Not one candidate ever said the words "Supply and Demand". This is the foundation of capitalism. Republicans think "rich people make jobs" so that must be capitalism. Shocking.

    So, are all of you anti-Herman Cain people RACISTS? Got something against BLACK people?

    How people make the individual mandate comparison to the Chilean social security plan is beyond me

    So what social security is optional now, this article is nothing more than just a joke this guy doesnt know what he's talking about

    ERIC KLEEFELD
    Eric Kleefeld joined TPM as an intern for the final months of the 2006 midterm elections, and then kept showing up for work. His other interests include guitars, old comic books and the politics of various English-speaking countries.

    He shows a lack of understanding the other side. He starts pointing to Chiles healthcare and some other shit which is irrelevant and says conservatives won't like Cain's stuff because it doesn't eliminate the welfare state, it puts more responsibility in the private sector. Which is exactly what conservatives want. Why do you read this stuff?

    Every estimate I have seen regarding Cain's 9-9-9 plan is that it will bring in less tax revenue than we have now. Which means simply, we won't be able to afford SS or Medicare any more.

    He's right do any of you guys know anything about the entitlements in this country? They are poorly executed and wasteful, they encourage dependency rather than nurture independence.

    A lot of you guys who advocate for this stuff never even took a hard look at it I have a feeling, but yes lets just continue this until all is lost.
