Did Herman Cain Steal His “999 Tax Plan” From 2003’s “SimCity 4” PC Game?

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.)

Coincidence?  Hmmmmmmmm?
