What's the one after 9-0-9?

Herman Cain took a beating for the fact that his 9-9-9 tax plan would raise taxes on low and middle income people while giving rich people a huge tax break.

So he has tweaked it and now says that for the poor it will be a 9-0-9 plan. You can be sure that such ad-hoc lurches due to pressure has produced another half-baked plan that will also be roundly attacked. So what's next?

This gives me an excuse to cue up the Beatles.

Hermain Cain needs to give up on this crazy tax plan before he loses any further credibility. He needs a new idea but I'm not sure he'll be taken seriously again after this policy?

I'm opting for the 9-1-1 tax plan!
