Oh come on. President Obama says Herman Cain’s plan would ensure the wealthy pay less and the lower and middle class pay more in taxes.
The president goes on.
Obama said that approach [Cain’s 9-9-9 plan] isn’t new. And he said that across the board he hasn’t heard any new ideas on helping the economy from Republicans, either in Congress or the candidates.
Not new? If Herman Cain’s plan isn’t “new” in federal government tax speak, I have no idea what would be new. Like the Democrats have actually brought anything new to the table in the last 40 years? All of their policies are rehashed from The New Deal … ALL OF THEM.
New is Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan. New is the Fair Tax. New is the Flat Tax. All of which are conservative proposals that Democrats avoid like the plague.
