By the way, the 9-9-9 flat tax plan included a 9% sales tax, plus 9% personal income tax and 9% corporate income tax.Yeah, and I disagreed with Mr Cain on two of those. A sales tax, unless it becomes as caveated and Byzantine as our current system, is hugely regressive, and--heresy alert--I don't think businesses should pay any sort of income tax (or get any tax bennies). In the end, even though it's a businessman who signs the tax check, it's the end customer who pays the tax, in the form of prices adjusted to cover what is, essentially, just another cost center.Eric Hines
