I try pretty hard not to write about politics. Since 2008, I have a harder and harder time seeing where Wall Street ends and Washington begins. With that said, once in a while a politician comes along that makes me feel like he is not a politician at all. In the case of Herman Cain, it is not a feeling. It is a reality.
Let me be clear, I don't want to turn this into a thread recapping last night's debate or debating party policy. I would instead like to focus on Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan. It has taken a lot of heat in the media and could turn into one of those subjects where a lie told often enough, becomes the truth. So, before we get to that point I would like to know how you guys look at it.
Is Cain's tax plan a viable alternative to our current set up? Here is the man in his own words. You be the judge.
