Cain’s 9-9-9 Plan IS Unconstitutional, Besides, "Who Is This Fellow?"
NEW ORLEANS, LA. – Professor Kevin Gutzman joins Mike to analyze whether or not the national sales tax portion of Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan is Constitutional? But the real highlight of the discussion is Gutzman wondering why people are so infatuated with a man they hardly know and whose signature legislative achievement would be the invention of a NEW Federal tax!? What could possibly be the motivation behind this and the infatuation with a former mayor who served 1/2 term as a governor (Palin), another 1/2 term governor, a real estate tycoon and a Congressman from Wisconsin? It boils down to one phrase and the phrase is NOT "serious about constitutional government."
