Herman Cain wants to implement the fairtax. That is an indication to me that he is idealistic, but perhaps hasn't thought some things through. Would I vote for him over Obama? In a heartbeat. However, he is not my first choice in the primary.
Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

Every time I see the last name Cain, it makes me think of the Danzig song... lol, and there are a lot of posts with his name in the title right now.
Why would the pre-bate be divided out? Each family gets a check, per members in household. Monthly I think. You buy stuff. The stuff you buy has a 23% tax on it. As long as you live below the poverty level, you'll not be paying taxes out of your own pocket, but you are still paying taxes as you spend that money. Nothing to keep track of. Never have to file taxes again.
The IRS will not be in charge of collections. The retailers will simply send them in as they do to the state, only it will be to the federal government.
