You obviously haven’t been in the upper 20% of the population who have to mark their every move on that ridiculously complicated and byzantine tax code. My time and privacy mean more to me than to spend hours keeping books specifically for the government.

Perhaps we could come up with a system where people who enjoy being b-——s for a bunch of authoritarian a———s and wasting hundreds of hours a year under the whips of a bunch of ignorant, effete, and officious bastards could opt for that, instead of just simply paying straight taxes.

Cain would negotiate the numbers, and by the way, his 9 9 9 would include that for Social Security, etc. I didn’t see that added in to your figures.

What makes you so sure of that.

Then read it again. I pointed out that the average family of 4 with the median income likely pays nothing but FICA, currently at 5.65%. So Cain's plan is an income tax increase on them right off the bat. Add to that the 9% sales tax on virtually everything they buy and it more than doubles their federal taxes.
