In the bible, Cain killed his brother Abel…think of how mind bending that must be for a young Herman Cain…that is a lot to measure up to, but our very own Herman Cain fully intends to live up to his namesake. Why do I think he will win? Well, it is easy to read the tea leaves…and the Tea Party…hatred of Mormons will trump hatred of Blacks.
Why did I reference the Bible story? Well like Cain in the story, if Herman Cain’s 999 plan…or as Bachmann put it the ‘Devil is in the details’ 666 plan, comes to fruition, the poor will surely die in great numbers, while the rich in this country will see their tax rates plummet by some 17%.
This alone provides the incentive for wealthy billionaires like the Kochs to support him, as they will see their businesses profit from this plan by the Billions of dollars, with the Corporate tax rate being reduced from 35% to 9%.
This sly 999 plan “would implement a 9 percent flat-tax on personal income and corporate income, along with a 9 percent national sales tax, while scrapping the rest of the tax code (including all of the deductions and all of the taxes on investment income such as capital gains).”
According to economists and also quoted here in this Think Progress article, as Center for American Progress Vice President for Economic Policy Michael Ettlinger put it, the plan “would be the biggest tax shift from the wealthy to the middle-class in the history of taxation, ever, anywhere, and it would bankrupt the country.” In essence, it would have the effect of cutting Federal Revenues in half, while causing more of a financial burden on the poor and the dwindling middle class.
Mr. Cain is no wimp, he understood the battle he would have as a black man walking among people who are not afraid to show that they hate you, so he got the biggest shield he could…that would be the backing of the Koch Brothers.
He understood that if he was a Christian running against the Mormon front runners, and he had the Kochs on his side, then he had a fighting chance. Even running against the christians, his Koch support would be the deciding factor, as money does indeed talk.
According to Think Progress, Herman Cain held an official position in the Koch-funded group Americans for Prosperity, Dating back to 2005.
Cain’s campaign manager is the former president of Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin chapter.
Cain attended the Koch Brothers’ private biannual meeting in Palm Springs.
Cain traveled to Wisconsin in support of the Koch-funded union-busting bill.
Cain headlined a Koch-funded anti-climate rally in New York.
Cain was a featured speaker at the Koch-funded RightOnline conference…and the list goes on and on.
So, hail to the new Republican nominee, Christian Herman Koch-Cain!!
