House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan says he loves presidential candidate Herman Cains signature 9-9-9″ tax plan.
Ryan told The Daily Caller in an exclusive interview that Cains plan shows the GOP presidential campaign season has entered into a more advanced stage where ideas not just personalities have come to the forefront.
We need more bold ideas like this because it is specific and credible, Ryan said. Im more of a flat-tax kind of a guy.
The budget chairman went on to say that ideas like Cains plan could help shape the debate over tax reform moving into 2013.
Its great to see such bold ideas, Ryan told TheDC.
Commenting on the sniping among the candidates and their criticism directed at Cains plan, Ryan said the entire process would make the eventual GOP nominee stronger going into the general election. Contacted by TheDC on Thursday, Herman Cains campaign was appreciative for the unexpected endorsement.
I consider Paul Ryan to be one of the brightest minds in Washington, D.C., said Mark Block, Cains chief of staff, and for Congressman Ryan to embrace 9-9-9 shows that he also has the leadership to give the American public bold solutions for our current crisis. Mr. Cain looks forward to sitting down with Congressman Ryan.
Dr. Art Laffer also wrote a piece praising 9-9-9, so you have two of the most respected people that are dealing with economics in America praising 9-9-9, Block added. That speaks for itself.

Awesome. The Cain Train is building momentum!
Polls: With Cain Gone, Romney Would DESTROY Perry
Don’t Sleep on Herman Cain
With the primaries moved up so early it will soon be time for conservatives to make their choices. The menu is set. One of these candidates will be our nominee. If not Herman Cain, then who?
After the IRS is abolished I will gladly accept 999.
And the Hermancain is gathering strength. It must be about a category 3 now.
Megyn Kelly just highlighted an airline (not sure which one)
*9-9-9 Taking off! Fares advertised for $9*
She seemed quite happy about it.
You are not on the HC ping list but I thought you’d want to see this :-)
First Art Laffer, now Paul Ryan.
Now that some serious heavyweight conservative economic guys have come out in favor of the 9-9-9 plan, can we start having a serious dicussion of the plan’s MERITS instead of just slinging will accusations?
“Paul Ryan loves Herman Cains 9-9-9 tax plan”
Now that right there would be one heck of an endorsement.
That’s good enough for me.

“Mark Block, Cains chief of staff”
Wait...you mean Cain HAS a chief of staff? Why, that would hint that he has a STAFF! Here I’ve been told (right here on FR) that Cain has no organization at all.
Guess another anti-Cain meme is getting shot down.
I guess that means that you will be finding some way to throw crap on these two liberals.
It's a VAT tax, it's a VAT tax, it's a VAT tax...blah, blah, blah...
Huck, want to reconsider your VAT tax posting on other blogs?
Those that wand Romney need to keep one thing in mind. During the last debates, I believe, Romney stated that he believes that humans are having an impact on global warming and this needs to be addressed. If he actually believes this, then he will keep the EPA as it is with all its regulations. This is going to cost the American tax payer.

RINOS! SQUAWK! RINOS!
At least Cain has a plan. Perry and Romney have been stuck using focus group tested and GOP Establishment approved platitudes.
IRS is not needed after 999. The tax form will be the size of a post card.
Art Laffer, now Paul Ryan?
Hmmm... I wonder what Milton Friedman would have thought of this...
Maybe we should ask now Steve Forbes ( the one who first ran under the flat tax banner )...
freeped of course...
