H.Cains' 999 theory rep-laces the rich mans 36% tax with 9% and the poor mans' 0% tax with 9%-is this really a good idea?.

    no because
    The poor, and I mean the truly poor, don't even have enough money each week to properly feed, clothe, and shelter their families. So, this crazy man's idea is to take from these people who literally have nothing, and give to those who buy purses, that are worth over half a year's pay for the poor, without batting an eye?

    the really poor get free food and usualy spend their money on alcohol, tobacco p[roducts and drugs-there are exceptions though
  • Mark den 2011/10/14 19:03:24
    Yes, and so the idea is to make those families suffer more just so that the rich can be even more rich? A lot of these poor turn to alcohol and drugs, because they cannot find any way to make ends meet. It's bad, sure, but we've seen how the rich handle less stressful situations: By turning to drugs and alcohol. How odd. They're the same!

    when people suffer because they stay drunk or high all week it is their fault and rich people do not cause it and give plenty to charity
  • Mark den 2011/10/16 06:40:10
    I agree that those who drink, or get high, are causing their own problems. Of course, if the reason for that is because of a bleak outlook on the future, due to failing corporations, at least part of the fault is on those same corporations.

    I also keep hearing about how "charitable" the rich are, and it's bogus. Sure, they give a lot of money, but usually to further their own interests. It has no bearing on whether they actually want to help someone or not. Plus, the amount that they give to charity is a far smaller percentage than many of the working class give to charity.

    We need to have a FLAT tax. Everyone pays the exact same percentage.
  • KingdomNow 2011/10/14 00:15:33
    yes because
    It opens up the conversation -The current tax scheme is broken.

    999 also has to address out of control government spending.

    Because the producers are tired of paying for the moochers, prices will go down too with this plan giving everyone more money in their pocket. Everyone has skin in the game and it is about friggin time.

    How about EVERYBODY pays their "FAIR SHARE"
  • den AMERICA... 2011/10/14 11:17:40
    what is everbody fair share-do you know or does anyone else know?
  • AMERICA... den 2011/10/14 13:36:27
    Yes I do it is called "equal protection under the law". We all pay the same percentage...on consumption.. The "Progressive" income tax is a phoney and un american idea as bad as the prohibition (introduced at the same time by the same progressive socialist nitwits)

    It evens things up the rich pay the same fair share of the total tax burden than the poor. Much fairer than it is today.
