Cain just gave his great tell of where the 9-9-9 plan came from: "In 1999, my first grandchild was born."

You can’t have a debate without saying 999 in a debate.
Michele Bachmann • Bringing up the ghost of Herman Cain again, mentioning her new “Win Win Win” plan in the process. Does she think that’s going to bring her back in the polls again?

Last night, Herman Cain got accused of sexual harassment by Politico. This morning, Cain showed up at the American Enterprise Institute, and the topic of conversation was … his 999 plan. Apparently, despite the fact that Cain has an actual scandal on his hands, AEI wouldn’t let them change the topic and ask the question that was actually on reporters’ minds. The WaPo’s Jennifer Rubin, above, called it well. Cain will still face it this morning, though — he’s about to head on Fox News.

Herman Cain didn’t pay his state taxes in 2006: The Daily Beast just scored an exclusive about the 999 Plan advocate, which shows that he was a couple years late in paying off his taxes in the state of Georgia. He had an understandable reason, however: He was getting treated for cancer at the time. He filed for an extension on his federal taxes, but never paid off his state taxes, forcing the state to later put a tax lien on him. Cain’s lawyer at first fought the allegations, but finally settled in late 2008. “The experience serves as an example of how broken our federal and state bureaucracies are with respect to the collection of revenue,” said Cain’s spokesman, J.D. Gordon. “The entire process is driven by automated letters generated in response to deadlines.”

Cut, Balance and Grow strikes a major blow against the Washington-knows-best mindset. It takes money from spendthrift bureaucrats and returns it to families. It puts fewer job-killing regulations on employers and more restrictions on politicians. It gives more freedom to Americans to control their own destiny. And just as importantly, the Cut, Balance and Grow plan paves the way for the job creation, balanced budgets and fiscal responsibility we need to get America working again.
Rick Perry • Discussing his new plan for taxes, “Cut, Balance and Grow,” which has a name clearly worded to evoke the “Cut, Cap and Balance” plan that House Republicans tried to push through earlier this year. Perry’s plan, in simple terms: An optional 20 percent flat tax, with benefits for lower-income people who would not necessarily benefit from such a flat tax. Don’t like it? Keep your current tax rate. Unlike Herman Cain’s 999 Plan, this might actually have a shot at getting through Congress. And would you look at that? Right on cue, Perry suddenly has an endorsement from Steve Forbes, the guy who banked his entire campaign on the flat tax — twice! Cain’s gonna have some gimmicky tax plan competition at the next debate. source (viafollow)

If you are at or below the poverty level, your plan isn’t 9-9-9, it is 9-0-9. Say amen y’all. 9-0-9.
Herman Cain • Claiming that his much-talked-about 999 plan was intended to always be income-tax-free for the poor. 909? Isn’t nearly as catchy now, is it? Cain made this statement in Detroit on Friday, which plays into some of the criticism his campaign has gotten — that he’s not focusing on the states that will help him win the early primaries. Earlier this month, Karl Rove put this point succinctly: “He needs to get his bus to Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida and Nevada. If he doesn’t break through there — and to break through there, you’ve got to show up, particularly in the first three.” source (viafollow)
