There's an alphabet soup of government overreach, Cain says

Washington (CNN) - The federal government is an out-of-control train racing down the tracks toward socialism and communism, Herman Cain said Saturday.

"We've got the IRS abuse. FEC intimidation. EPA discrimination. DOJ intimidation. NSA corruption. And it goes on and on and on in terms of the abuse and the corruption in the government that wants to control all of our lives," he said at the annual Faith and Freedom Coalition conference.

Back in the spotlight, Cain invokes rabble-rousing routine

Washington (CNN) - Herman Cain attempted to tap into his artistic side Friday night, opening up his part-comedy routine, part-political speech at the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference with a poem about - you guessed it – his “9-9-9” tax plan.

“To heck with the skeptics who don’t have a plan,” Cain said, cheekily reciting one of the lyrics. “Because 9-9-9 has captivated the land.”
