Cain is already tinkering around the edges, with promises to exempt the poor from sales taxes.

Prebates?? Hell no. Send money to DC that we do NOT owe?? Hell no, that should be a non-starter with any conservative.

If he is promising this is “revenue neutral” then your argument about it limiting revenue is spurious. Spending is far and above revenue right now, spending is the problem. This does nothing to tackle spending or deficits.

Like I said, he is already making it “progressive” to appease the media, we should say NO. We know where this is going.

There is nothing that stops the government from raising these taxes, by the way.

Yes, I heard Cain on the radio today talking about a probate, and I about drove off the road. His plan will be a disaster. I wish he would just advocate a small flat tax, with no probates or other mechanisms ripe for abuse.

MNJohnnie, we didn't get a total debt greater than our GDP because we're collecting too much taxes. And that's not counting all of our unfunded liabilities.

Like I said, he is already making it “progressive” to appease the media, we should say NO. We know where this is going.

There is nothing that stops the government from raising these taxes, by the way.

I don't know if the national sales tax could get through a GOP Congress with 60 GOP senators. What's the mechanism to collect it? Too many people will want to make their sales off the books, IMHO.

Flat 13 - 14 percent income and business taxes might be an easier bill to pass. IIRC, Cut, Cap & Balance has no deficit spending without a supermajority vote in each house. Reconciliation rules for budget bills need to be scrapped, and the Sixteenth Amendment needs to be repealed.

You might want to try actually learning about 9-9-9 since your ignorance is showing.

Prebates applies to everyone, not the poor. He is not making it “progressive”

And there is nothing that stops the Government from raising taxes right now.

So your criticisms are utterly baseless.
