  1. What do traders think of Mr. Cain as a candidate for POTUS?

    His biggest thing presently is his 9/9/9 plan.
    9% income tax for everyone.
    9% business tax for all businesses.
    9% federal sales tax.

    Everyone pays the same rate.

    ABO.
     
  3. Does anyone have a plan that doesn't include the word tax?

    It seems the cure for what ails us is another tax. At this point we can elect anybody cause they all say the same thing. "Tax"

    Oh you are so hard-pressed.

    ABSS.

    Ditto
    Wouldn't that sort of plan require spending cuts? Spending being our real problem of course.
     
  7. His Corporate Tax is suspect because it implies the taxation of gross revenue, not gross profit. That would decimate most business. He needs to clarify the issue, but AFAICT, it appears to be so.

    Like Nutmeg said, there's zero mention of spending *reductions*, which is tantamount. No mention of the 1 Trillion Defense budget. No mention of entitlement reform. No mention of the bloated Federal Government.

    Going to a flat rate or sales tax is better, but that only addresses 1/10th of the problem. That isn't to say tax reform isn't critical - it is. But it's only one major problem amongst many.
     
  8. Why not 0/13/14 instead of 9/9/9? Less work for the former.

    fuck the lawyers
