If Herman Cain wants to be President, he only needs one significant tweak to his 9-9-9 program, and this one tweak will bring in more money to the ailing federal government and do more to protect and grow our sagging Middle Class than anything else!
I understand the flat 9% income tax and the flat 9% corporate taxes but I decry that 9% National Sales Tax!
What we need is a flat 9% tariff & duty on all goods and services coming into the country.
This requires shoring up our borders and allowing the Coast Guard to once again do its job.
This protects both the little guy at home and abroad from unfair competition, the little guy on both sides of the fence. Those within our borders and those outside our borders.
If Cain gets rid of his “Sales Tax” and institutes a system of tariffs & duties similar to what George Washington founded, Cain will save our country and preserve order for the world.
But, fat chance. Why fat chance? Because every President who has been assassinated or upon whose life there has been an assassination attempt withstood immense pressures to do away with our protective tariffs & duties. Only this time, we need to implement a tax upon those “intellectual” services rendered as telephone assistance from overseas as well.
