The reason that businesses didn't wholeheartedly reinvest in America under the Bush tax cuts is because businesses aren't dumb. They know that temporary measures end at some point, but they can't be sure of when. This climate of uncertainty doesn't encourage businesses to invest in America and open up wide scale hiring.

    I have no interest in an outdated opinion by Fox news, no matter how much you spam it here. Try to focus on the thread topic.

    I'm not a fan of the 999 "plan." I don't like the 9% sales tax idea, I find the "plan" a touch unrealistic and woefully simplistic.

    What is it about liberalism that creates such loyalty that you are displaying?

    Outdate? 1000 days is right now and the results are current. What is it about liberalism that creates such loyalty as you are showing?

    You don't have to be a liberal to see that Cain's 999 tax plan would be bad for the country.

    The value of our "improved economy" ????? Would you like some poll numbers on what the American people's opinion of the "improved economy" are ??

    Let's look at a comparison of how Reagan's unemployment numbers looked at the same time in his first administration. Remember that unemployment was worse during Reagan's first term. UE under Reagan dropped rapidly, Obama's is the same or worse.

    You can't honestly think the 999 plan would work do you? Talk about class warfare then that is it.

    Your article doesn't even mention the American Jobs Act. Do you have anything to contribute on topic at all???

    It's not perfect - but it would certainly work better than what we are saddled with currently.
