The Cain people have been saying individuals will save 15% when they repeal the payroll tax. Well this is false because No individual pays a payroll tax of 15.3%...the employer pays over half of it, so individuals pay approx. 7% and after deductions most lower income individuals pay only 2% of their salary in income tax. So in all truthfulness lower income individuals generally pay about 8% or 9%. Under Cains plan these people will pay a 9% sales tax and a 9% income tax.... therefore your asking lower income individuals to pay almost 10% more in taxes. Not going to work! This plan could win the primary but has zero chance of winning the general election. Newts plan of being able to have the FREEDOM to choose between the old tax code or a 15% flat tax with a 12% corp. tax rate is far superior and can easily win a general election and it doesnt add a third tax. Plus manufacturers would be lined up to come back to this country with a corporate tax rate of 12%.
