About the Book
9-9-9 An Army of Davids offers fresh and unique solutions to our current economic crisis. It goes beyond the first steps—un-electing President Obama and repealing his dangerous laws and executive orders—and focuses on fundamental reforms that will make our economy soar as it did in the 80s and 90s. 9-9-9 An Army of Davids shows why the country needs Herman Cain’s signature 9-9-9 tax plan and the elimination of a tax code that holds us back robs us of our initiative, discourages jobs, and swamps our economy with imports.
“His argument for a ‘9-9-9’ plan puts the current income and payroll taxes in the shredder and replaces them with a 9% personal income tax with no deductions, a 9% net business income tax, and a 9% national sales tax. That would be rocket fuel for the economy…”
Wall Street Journal editorial page
(Wall Street Journal, Sept. 30, 2011)
“…with the 9-9-9 Plan, both the demand and the supply of labor and capital will increase. The output will soar, as well as jobs. Tax revenues will increase enormously, not because tax rates have increased, but because marginal tax rates have decreased.”
