I hate to see any type of crime committed but Cain will be getting a huge beat down (figuratively speaking) if he wins the nomination and has to go against Obama in the General Election. He will not have a chance. Raise taxes on average americans by 9%. Oh yeah that will get you elected.

Who in their right minds would want their taxes raised by 9% at any time, much less during bad economic times.

I can't believe he is doing so well in the primaries. If Paul does not win, then I have one thing to say. Go Cain and take the rest of the Republican party with you.

This thread title is misleading.

What does Herman Cain's tax plan have to do with black on black crime?!

Two candidates, both of whom are black. It will be a crime (figuratively speaking) at how bad Cain would lose to Obama, if for no other reason than his tax plan.

You have a crystal ball, people sorry are tired of Obama, in every way possible. One has more business sense, and that sure the hell can't hurt us in any way.
What does race have to do with anything, should be about the best candidate for the job of running this Country, not race. And if you want to make this about Race Obama's race is not cutting it. Not his white half or his black half.

tax changes almost always happen incrementally so even if Cain won he would be unlikely to get his '9-9-9' plan through Congress. I think most voters are smart enough to realize that. There are plenty of other reasons to consider voting for Cain whether you like the plan or not. Obama plans to raise $1 billion for his campaign and the big donors, at least, are going to want payback. Putting the kibosh on that would be alone reason enough for me to vote for McCain over Obama.

You really need to research some facts and not rehash disproven Dem talking points. 999 eliminates all payroll taxes (paid by the working poor, as the leftist playbook always quotes) and replaces them, and all federal income taxes, with a 9% income tax. The current payroll tax is 13.3%, set to rise back to 15.3% when the stimulus based cut expires. 9%<15.3%.

It gets rid of other taxes and replaces it with the 999. It isn't a raise, it is an instead of tax.

I think you left out the 9% sales tax already added on the local and state sales taxes. Currently 52 percent do not pay any taxes so they would have an 18% tax increase. Yeah, let me have some of that. They are going to jump on him tonight about that.

Whenever I hear of the 999 Plan, I think of Domino's 555 offer and get hungry. Thanks to Cain I've gained 15 lbs in the last three months. He needs to lose only because I'm not sure if voluntary obesity is covered by Obamacare.

Does it. It does away with state and local sales taxes? Really, I think you may be a little mistaken on that one partner. Fed does not have that kind of power...not yet.

You would have to pay an additional 9% sales tax on everything that you purchase...in addition to the local and state taxes that you already pay. That is clearly a tax increase for the average american...and that is a DOA on arrival along with Cains presidency chances. You will hear more about it tonight.
