999 looks too much like 666 to me.Submitted by Dan Warner on Thu, 09/29/2011 - 12:12
Maybe it is just me, but Herman Cain's 999 plan looks too much like 666 to me. As a person who was raised in a christian household that number just gives me a bad feeling. But going beyond that, I have a few questions.
First of all, will all federal income taxes and withholdings be repealed or done away with BEFORE this plan is implemented? If not then this is a non-starter.
In my state we have a sales tax, but you dont pay it on non-prepared food, clothing, medicine or home heating, you know the essential services. Will this national sales tax also account for these exceptions? If not we are going to take a big hit in our cost of living overall.
