But he holds some very troublesome positions. He supported TARP, which was IMO indefensible; he doesn't think it's important to audit the Federal Reserve; he favors a blanket cut to the corporate tax rate (rather than a targeted cut that favors companies that invest in domestic production). He also supports the so-called "fair tax"... a 23% federal sales tax - which I am not really sure about. It seems like a regressive tax to me, that will sharply increase the tax on the middle class and vastly reduce it on the very rich. He supports banning the estate tax, which I agree with. However, taken together, the "fair tax" (worry anytime you see a title like that) and the end of the estate tax will very likely promote further transfer of wealth to the rich. That's already a huge problem.
Cain suports both the Afghan and Iraw war, and doesn't support any sort of timetable for withdrawal. This is huge to me. People are dying, money is being wasted. We need to get out of those hell holes.
He hasn't got any sort of plan to deal with trade balance.
His jobs plan is basically looking to stimulate business via tax relief. That's not going to work. Corporations have plenty of cash. The problem is demand. You can't stimulate your way to prosperity from either the business or consumer side. Tried both; neither works.
The man doesn't appear to be a disingenuous suit like some of the others... but he hasn't shown that his ideas are going to fix anything.
the NAACP is NOT racist.
Neither is the UNCF.
Sick and tired of hearing anything about racism.
GASP! I have it. You can't work? DEPORTED. Let a eager illegal alien fill your slot.
Except for of course, people that can't because they are disabled or something legitimate.
The government can fund whatever they want, but we shouldn't have to pay for useless lazy slobs to exist.
Deport them, set up a exchange program with mexico. Anyone that applies for benefits, and can work, but does not is immediately exchanged for a able mexican.
