Cain: Some would pay more under '9-9-9'

Washington (CNN) - Herman Cain said Sunday some Americans would pay higher taxes under his "9-9-9" plan, but denied suggestions that the poorest Americans and middle-class would pay more.

"Some people will pay more. But most people will pay less," Cain said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

    This guy is a real joke. Check out all of his statements. He wants to do away with SS and Medicare and his 9-9-9 plan puts an additional burden on the poor and middle class. Remember, his state sales tax is on top of the one that is already in place. His plan only benefits the rich which is what all Republican plans want to do. Do your homework before you even consider putting this guy on the ballot.

    Almost every new Poll Herman Cain in top and leading Mitt Romney

    Herman Cain getting tea party support 60% and Herman Cain getting 50% support from age 30 and above

    So CNN “A CNN poll of polls indicates that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is on top of the GOP field of candidates at 23%” update your poll numbers

    WOW, you liberals from the party that peach "tolerance" and "understanding" are anything but that. Your racist comments towards this black man, Mr. Cain, is appalling. Bet if Mr. Cain were a liberal white man you wouldn't be making your racist remarks......Liberals are RACIST!!!!

  5. Are you serious

    A flat tax is a huge tax break for the rich – you think Bush gave them a break, Cain's plan would have them paying a tenth of what they used to. And who do you think is gonna make up the shortfall? Yeah, you and me.

    He will NOT get my vote, because his "plan" is simply welfare for the rich.
