    Lower incomes now pay 10%, under Cains plan they would pay a 9% income tax and 9% sales tax while capital gains tax is eliminated.

    So no, you do not have any examples of this. It's simple. Show me a law, bill, or anything the actual "Tea Party" supported that does what you claim.

    I like Cain. I said it here that I wasn't a big fan of his tax plan BUT he was the only one willing to discuss overhauling our tax system, so in that he was worth considering.

    Re: Occupy Wall Street vs The Tea Party

    The OWS Movement is in no way like the Tea Party of the left (Why Occupy Wall Street is Not the Tea Party of the Left | Foreign Affairs). The Tea Party is funded by the Koch bros (The Billionaires Bankrolling the Tea Party - NYTimes.com) (Tea Party Funding Koch Brothers Emerge From Anonymity - Peter Fenn (usnews.com)) (Tea Party funded by Koch Oil, leading environmental criminal.). While there are worries about the co-optation of the OWS movement (VIDEO: Occupy Wall Street Infiltration? Andrew Gavin Marshall) [I will write about this later today as it seems that people are trying to co-opt the movement], it looks as if the OWS movement is not being funded by corporations.

    And OWS hasn't engaged in racism or threats of violence. The Teabaggers have
    Teabaggers have a picnic on a weekend, listen to speeches, and then go home, sacrificing nothing but a few hours. OWS protesters stay, for weeks now, and risk arrest and abuse by the police.

    Stop posting nonsense. Everyone knows that the teabaggers are just a wing of the republican party

    If for no other reason, I like it because I will no longer have to be bothered by a tax return every year. I also like the 9 9 9 plan because it actually does level the playing field - something the Democrats / liberals have been calling for.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Well... if capital gains taxes are eliminated..... won't the producers of products be able to lower prices and keep the same profit margin?

    Re: Occupy Wall Street vs The Tea Party

    I like a national sales tax. A 9% national sales tax at that. Nothing creates jobs like encouraging everyone to consume less.

    Cain's plan is a massive tax cut for the rich and a much higher tax burden on the poor coupled with austerity measures. I'm sure everyone would take it nice and quietly.
