With that said, I honestly think that all the candidates agree with Cain behind closed doors. But on stage, they don't think they'll get the support to dissolve the IRS so they blast him.
I don't think they support it on either side of the door.
I think our wars and some of the spending should be tied directly to taxation. You want to go to Iraq? OK american people its going to cost this much meaning we need to raise this much via taxation, bonds, etc. We have to pony up. Actually declare war via congress like we are supposed to. Things like that.
9% sales tax is a disaster, especially in states where (like here) there is already a 7% sales tax in place.
9% corporate tax is not enough.
9% for the middle class is kind of a wash, 9% for the wealthy is a huge tax break.
Overall its a shitty plan. You can't expect simple things to solve very complex problems.
