Herman Cain, 9-9-9 Plan Dominate GOP Debate

by at . Comments

He may never win an election, but thanks to his 9-9-9 tax plan, Herman Cain was the clear winner of last night's Republican Presidential Debate in New Hampshire.

If you believe any publicity is good publicity, the Georgia businessman is sitting pretty after his idea to overhaul the U.S. tax system got everybody's attention.

The 9-9-9 plan plugged by Cain every nine seconds is not, as John Huntsman suggested, the price of pizza (a good line, seeing as Cain was once CEO of Godfather's).

If Herman Cain were president, he'd abolish the IRS in favor of flat nine percent sales, business and income taxes. Logistically impossible? Perhaps, but man, so catchy!

Mitt Romney politely praised it while calling it too simplistic, but the best - and arguably most inappropriate, from a professed Christian - zinger came from Michele Bachmann.

Watch her assessment of Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan below:

I CAN'T DECIDE, BETWEEN CAIN, AND ROMNEY. I THINK CAIN SHOULD RUN FOR VP. AFTER ROMNEY WINS IN 2012 AND 2016, HIS V.P., CAIN, WILL HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE, AND SHOULD RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020.

This is the second time I've seen you folks say he can't win. I wasn't aware you guys had a crystal ball over there. How much do you charge for those glimpses into the future?
