    999 is the Tax of the Inverted Beast.

    Reminds me a little bit of that famous Sidney Harris cartoon… “I think you should be a little more explicit here in step two.”

    How about the way Cain tried to dodge the questions about his 9% sales tax with that lame, "Apples and Oranges’ bit? Never tried to explain HOW it was different from a state sales tax. Just kept repeating the phrase over and over, trying to drown out whoever was talking to him.

    What else does Cain plan as President in addition to taking more money from poor folks? Remember, with income of $20,000 a year, $1800 goes for income tax, and another $1800 goes for necessities. That is $3600 out of the $20000.
    How can this be less taxing than $0?

    Necessities would be exempt up to a certain amount depending on family size.
    Plus, you still got your math wrong. After paying the $1800 income tax, there would be only $18,200 left to pay sales tax on.

    ^ And there’s something about Enterprise Zones…

    SIMON JESTER: It’s because it is apples and oranges. If the Federal Gov’t decided tomorrow to change the Tax Code so you pay 0%, you’d still be paying whatever State Income Tax you pay today. If they raised it to 90% you’d still be paying whatever you pay today. And if they lower it to 9% + a 9% Sales Tax you’d still be paying whatever State Income Tax you pay today. One thing has nothing to do with the other. That’s why it’s apples and oranges. If you want your State Income Taxes lowered lobby your State Legislature.

    No….you’d still be paying more in sales tax under Cain’s plan. Where ithe money goes doesn’t change that fact. Nor does it change the fact that Cain’s 999 plan is regressive.

    If this is your idea of “intellect” then I think I understand where all your other comments are coming from. Having the “courage” to push a regressive tax that will hurt the poor and middle class and give more to the already rich is not a new idea skippy.

    is mixing apples and oranges. The ‘Fair Tax’, said to be about a 30% sales tax, first calculates how much a poor person needs to spend to stay alive: rent, food, clothes, etc. Then, on the first day of the year, everyone, rich and poor, gets a rebate of 30% of that amount. Then everything is taxed, rent, food, clothes, etc. Net: people, whether poor or misers, who spend only the bare minimum to stay alive pay no net tax, since the rebate covers the sales taxes collected.


    The 9-9-9 ‘first step’ to the ‘Fair Tax’ provides no such rebate.

    @grayhares01 – look in the mirror. You people have been doing it ever since Nixon’s “southern strategy”. You wrote the book on “the race card thng”. I beg to differ with you about who is the expert here.
