What treat on Halloween! GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain is coming to the American Enterprise Institute on October 31st for a 9 AM chat with AEI tax guru Kevin Hassett. (I just might sneak in a few questions, too!)
As you know, Cain’s 9-9-9 tax plan has incited energized discussion about the impact of taxes on Americans. The plan would throw out our current tax system and replace it with a 9 percent business tax, a 9 percent personal income tax, and a 9 percent national sales tax. Many economists believe that this move would promote growth, but detractors argue that the plan might raise tax rates for low-income Americans.
Following the discussion, a panel of experts will debate the merits and liabilities of 9-9-9. You can watch the whole thing live here.
Even better, you can participate by asking questions! Option 1: Pop a question into the comment section of this blog post. Option 2: Tweet a question to the Twitter hashtag #AEICain. That’s all there is to it!
