Michelle Bachmann is CORRECT.  While this will do away with the IRS * it ALLOWS Congress to pile on MORE taxes and HIGH TAX areas like DC will have 19% taxes....

The Congress already piles on more taxes. At least this would be a restart on our current taxes. And getting rid of the current tax code is a must.

I can easily see 9-9-9 turning into 20-20-20 by using Warren Buffet's class warfare tactics.  No thanks.  We don't need more taxes, we need less of them, and way less spending.

Wallace - I hope that both you and Mrs Bachman had a chance to listen to the radio show yesterday.  It was very non political and the host is a financial planner.  His business partner is a CPA.  Basically they just went through the numbers of how the program would work.  While there would be a 9% tax added at the end there is also a cost reduction in the entire supply chain leading up to it.  Most of the analysis that I have heard say the in the end it will be cost neutral. 


Rob- Saying the tax could change does not hold any water for me.  That argument can be applied to any tax, anywhere anytime.  Just think for a moment how many HIDDEN taxes and tax loopholes there are right now. 9-9-9 moves it all in to plain sight.  I totally agree on the way less spending idea.  Stimulating businesses and encouraging economic growth is only half the equation.  That would have to come from effective fiscal management which a President Cain would be well able to address.

The politicians have a huge issue with 9-9-9.  What is it?  It brings transparency to the tax code.  It removes, or at least greatly diminishes, the ability to to reward lobbyists, special interests, and political donors with tax breaks. It represents a fundemental change to the way Washington currently works. That threatens the political class which I think is a very good thing.
