Well it looks like there’s no such thing as an original idea, even REALLY BAD ONES.
Herman Cain might not know it. (or might) But it turns out theres already a 999 tax plan. And it exisit in the virtual world of “The Sims”
Herman Cain wants us to have a corporate income tax rate would be 9 percent, the personal income tax rate would be 9 percent and the national sales tax rate would be 9 percent.
Turns out the residents of SimCity 4 — which was released way back in 2003 — were living under a system where the default tax rate was 9 percent for commercial taxes, 9 percent for industrial taxes and 9 percent for residential taxes.
When asked about similarities between Cain’s plan and SimCity’s default tax rates, Cain campaign spokesman JD Gordon replied, “Well, we all like 9-9-9.” (As I am sure you do 666 also.)
