Herman Cain was on Meet the Press today and explained to David Gregory how his 9-9-9 tax plan eliminates hidden taxes in all of the goods and products we buy. The 9% national sales tax would eliminate those hidden taxes and would be visible to everyone who pays it. Of course Gregory grilled Cain, just like he grilled Barack Obama, oh wait, never mind. The grilling didn’t seem to bother Cain, who did a good job explaining his plan.
In related news, The Associates Press and ABC News report that Herman Cains has ties to the Koch Brothers. The last time I checked, the Kochs weren’t working feverishly to destroy the American way of life.
Addendum: If Cain’s tax plan would eliminate the 18.4 cents per gallon federal tax on gas think of the savings right there.
Update: Linked by Fire Andrea Mitchell – thanks!
