Yes - I think the plan would create jobs and increase America's competitiveness. 85.72% (8,234 votes)
The poor have subsidies that they can draw from, health care, food stamps, and charity until their circumstances improve. We need jobs and Mr. Cain knows what businesses need to grow and provide jobs for all Americans. This nation needs this successful business man in the Oval Office. He will govern this nation as if it were a successful business with his common sense solutions and he will lead us all back to prosperity. Americans will be using their head when we vote in 2012 and we will be voting for Herman Cain. He is the one person in the field who can lead this nation and unite us and end this Un-American class warfare agenda that divides us,creating suspicion, envy and hatred in our communities. Shame on President Obama for using such a thing as a tool to advance his ideology. He had an opportunity to united this nation,but he did just the opposite. He created crisis after crisis, while his left hand regulated, litigated and intimidated this nation into a greater poverty. America will choose Mr. Cain. He will do what is best for all Americans. He will be a great leader.

Your blind confidence in this man is very disturbing. People had the same kind of blind confidence in Obama. Very scarry! show more show less
I like Harman Cain and will vote for him if he is on the ballet. I would prefer the Fair Tax but would go along with the 999. He's a business man and understands economics. Hopefully he s man of God and Country, and not in this for himself.
I agree that this would be excellent for business and create jobs. There are many other benefits but one in particular that I'd like to point out. For decades, our representatives in Washington have been gaming the tax code and using it as one of the sources of the power of incumancy. By passing the 999 Plan you effectively eliminate all tax breaks and deductions leaving only the budget as places where politicians can give favors back to donors and interest groups. Their only outlet will then be the budget process and with renewed scrutany on the budget process there will be no place else for legislators to hide bad deals for a while. The 999 Plan and transparency in budgeting would make very nice bookends for good fiscal governance starting in January 2013.
Many people who are on welfare are spending lots of money on clothes, tatoos, jewelry, and other expensive things. This way everyone is taxed. If they truely are on welfare then they can't afford to be buying the extras and won't be taxed. The way it is on welfare, I believe they have a credit card that they use and when that is used there would or should be a reduced or no sales tax. How do you determine that these people are really spending there welfare money on necessities. I had a neighbor that told evryone that she was on welfare, she building a 2-story on her home and bought all new furniture. Some of the furniture she wouldn't pay for it. The company kept after her and she finally returned it in an open pickup on a rainy day. Some of these people are nuts.
the sales tax on everything alone would probably get us out of debt and get out of irs and solve alot of funding problems finally someone whos actually got a brain.
Yes, Mr. Cain, I've been your supporter when you first announced. Thw whole point of this 9-9-9 plan is for EVERYONE to pay, equally.

How can Cain have tea party support for his positions on the federal reserve? are they THAT dumb?
