9-9-9 and The Fair Tax

 As you may know I am a huge supporter of the Fair Tax. The Fair Tax simplifies the tax system by removing and replacing the current tax code with a 23% national sales tax. It gets rid of the IRS, and allows people to live without worry of filing their taxes every year. It removes all loopholes, encourages the lower income to save money, and taxes everyone including illegals. With my strong support of the Fair Tax some might wonder why I support Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan and why they should as well.

Herman Cain originally came out as a supporter of the Fair Tax, but has now came out with a new plan called 9-9-9. The plan replaces the current tax system with a 9% business flat tax, a 9% individual flat tax, and a 9% national sales tax. The 9-9-9 plan simplifies the tax code, and bridges the country from the current tax code to the Fair Tax. Herman Cain knows that the Fair Tax is the best option, but he also knows that we cannot do it all at once. Herman Cain says on his website, www.HermanCain.com, that this is phase one and the Fair Tax is phase two. The reason you should support 9-9-9 is for two reasons.

Reason one is that it is a vast improvement of the current tax system. The second reason is it is the stepping stone for the Fair Tax. It may not be your ideal change, but it is a reasonable plan that I believe has a better chance of passing at the time.
