Why 9-9-9 won't even get off the ground

Let me tell you why Cains' 9-9-9 Plan will never be implemented.
Cain's plan would trash our current taxes and replace them with a 9 percent income tax, a 9 percent business tax and a 9 percent national sales tax, plain and simple.
There are a couple of reasons it won't work. First off, it will actually raise taxes for some - you know, the poor that don't pay taxes while bitching about the rich not paying enough - and secondly, it will abolish most if not all of the Internal Revenue Service, which will save millions of dollars in itself. Bureaucracy abhors a vacuum. It can't even have a simple committee without having subcommittees. No fucking way can it cut an entire department.
