Saw an AP story reporting Cain's long association with the Koch brothers. The Wells Fargo non-economist who he credits with thinking up 9-9-9 is also involved with them. So we can assume no Social Security or Medicare under Cain. Plenty of breaks for the billionaires, including no tax on dividends or cap gains, probably not interest either. 9-9-9 is a nice catch phrase but most Americans will be worse off if it ever becomes law. All that said, don't dismiss Cain. He's got tons of money and powerful people behind him.
