Don't think it's possible? Think again. Just ask Harry Reid about being unpopular and getting re-elected.
And from what I saw this a.m., Fox is in the tank for Romney?
Actually Cain will beat him like a Red Headed stepchild. Reid was in NV and the Country Club destroyed the Tea Party candidate.
Pray for America
There you go again.
Lucky for him the viewing audience was nil. I don't know if it was the football game, baseball game or folks just couldn't find the Doomberg channel.
The MSM is attacking Cain let and right this morning. No idea what you are talking about ~ give us some REFERENCES.
Just ask Harry Reid about being unpopular and getting re-elected.
—Cain would be beatable without 9-9-9...—
Not if the democratic nominee is Obama. But I seriously doubt it will be.
I take it you're not a Cain supporter?
You know, maybe it’s not perfect, but it is a plan...and that’s a HECK of a lot more than anyone else is putting on the table!
Reid won because of a good ground game in Nevada and Angel pissing off the right people who ran off to the polls to defeat her. There isn’t a prayers chance for Obama. But if the nominee of Romney or Perry then the conservatives will be split and it will help him.
What I really want is for Cain and his staff to issue on his website, a Q&A on his 9-9-9 plan IN RESPONSE TO CRITICS ( many of them existing here in the FR forum ).
There are so many issues left unanswered which a 30 second response cannot do justice to.
1) How does it affect the life of a low income at or below or even a little above poverty level wage earner?
He ought to put some good a solid sample tax calculations on his website for people like these.
2) How will it affect the total price of goods and services?
3) How will it affect small businesses, will it make it more expensive or less expensive for them to do business?
4) It adds a new tax, which is a temptation to congress to turn it into a complicated pile of dung.
NOTE: Cain’s answer to #4 above was three-fold : A) A 2/3 majority will be required to increase any of the above number ‘9’; B) It won’t happen as long as he’s president; C) The vigilance of the people will ensure that this won’t happen.
Many still have their reservations ( as Bachmann said last night, if you turn the ‘9’ around the devil is in the details ). Firstly, Cain won’t be president forever, so any future Congress can monkey around with it after he’s gone. secondly, the 2/3 clause can be waived by a future Democrat Congress. I guess that leaves our vigilance as the last line of defense.
If Cain does not do it, his plan ( especially the federal sales tax portion ) will be attacked. Ric Santorum already tested this last night when he asked the people of New Hampshire if anyone of them want a sales tax ( no one raised their hands ).
He’s the only person running that has a large amount of enthusiastic supporters behind him. Anybody want Romney? Besides liberal and the inside the beltway crowd?
Anybody want Perry except a few here on FR that seem to think that Texas automatically equals conservative?
Newt would be great and I’d vote for him if I thought it would do any damned good at all. Of the top three, the only one that causes any excitement is Cain.
Cain should just go for the 9% flat income tax!
He has to somehow unchain himself from 999.
I don’t mean he has to drop it, but he has to make it less like the only way to vote for Cain is if you agree with 999.
That’s a LOSING proposition for Cain.
He’s supposed to be a well-rounded CANDIDATE, not a freaking TAX PACKAGE.
