Feasibility of Herman Cain’s 999 Tax Plan
Feasibility of Herman Cain’s 999 Plan
Bravo to Herman Cain for being bold enough to have a plan but it is a complete flat regressive tax and will cripple the middle class and the poor. For the first time ever food will and medicine will be taxed. This in great disproportion harms children who need food to grown and the elderly who need their heart medications which they are only taking three of seven days of the week as it is so they can afford food. So food and medicine is going to be taxed on the 999 plan. Children and the Elderly will be killed but what else?
Well one of the more popular features of Herman Cain’s 999 plan is that if you buy something used it will not be taxed. That is great when you buy a home or used car.
But what are some of the things you can’t buy used?
Toilet Paper- I guess you could buy it used but why would you want to and while it is already taxed there would be an increase in taxes on toilet paper. Looks like hygiene may not be in the future for the USA under the Cain 999 plan.
Gasoline- Can’t buy that used and it will suffer and increase of taxation and therefore will cost much more per gallon and make that tax free used car not necessary because no one will be able to fford the gasoline.
Soap- Soap will be taxed. You will have to pay more to bath yourself and be cleanly. Now the Christan Scientists must be alright with this but personally I like to be able to buy a bar of soap and wash for under a dollar. Under Herman Cain’s plan that will no longer exist.
Condoms- We have an Aids epidemic going on and access to condoms doesn’t need to be taxed but made more readily available. This is also true for birth control pills to limit the number of births in this country. You can’t buy used condoms or used birth control pills so they are taxed and at even higher rates under the 999 plan.
Feminine Hygiene Products- These items should have never been taxed either but under Cain’s 999 plan there will be a substantial increase in price on these items.
No matter what Herman Cain says this qualifies as substantial increases in flat regressive taxes on the poor and middle class. And with the increases in taxes to such a drastic level one wonders what American society would look like? No hygiene, no food, no medicine, no sex or and increase in the epidemic of AIDS, no jobs no gas to drive to the job and no hope. I applaud Herman Cain for having a plan but I think it is a horrific flat regressive tax which would further oppress the poor and middle class who are so terribly disenfranchised.
We need a President that is going to enfranchise Americans. It really is that simple. And flat regressive taxes will never enfranchise the disenfranchised who are already suffering. 999 in particular harms the elderly, children and women. That is a huge demographic to disenfranchise.
After reading this plan I not only will not vote for Herman Cain if he is on the ticket with Romney. I will never buy Godfather’s pizza or anything from any organization Herman Cain has been associated with.
I think Herman Cain's 999 tax plan is just another example of how out of touch politicians are with ordinary people especially when birth control and condoms are to be taxed which can result in unwanted pregnancies, abortions and an AIDS epidemic in the USA. Not to mention the flat regressive tax which will destroy the elderly, women, the poor and what is left of the ellusive middle class.
