by Henry W. Burke

BOTTOMLINE:  

Herman Cain’s 999 Plan would raise almost the same amount of taxes as our present system (i.e., revenue neutral).  The higher-income people would save the most under the 999 Plan; but here is the good news: They are the people who create the jobs for the rest of us!  The more money the higher-income people do not have to send to Washington, D. C., the more they will invest in jobs for the rest of us Americans. The 999 Plan would completely rejuvenate our country and would put huge numbers of Americans back to work.  The 999 Plan’s pro-growth emphasis will light a fire under our economy and create millions of new jobs. 

A predictable, business-friendly tax system will encourage businesses to expand and create jobs because the job creators will know what to expect in the future — no surprises.  Herman Cain’s 999 Plan indeed is about “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.”  

Please read further to understand the details of Herman Cain’s 999 Plan.   

INTRODUCTION 

Presidential candidate Herman Cain has rocked the country with his bold but simple plan to ignite our economy.  His “999 Plan” calls for an individual flat income tax rate of 9 %, a business flat income tax of 9 %, and a national sales tax of 9 %.  Herman Cain’s plan does not affect state sales taxes; it only applies to federal taxes.  

The plan is simple but will it work?  This is the question everyone is asking.  This relatively short and straightforward report will offer some answers and explore various aspects of the 999 Plan.   

I have prepared examples to show how much tax you would  save under the present tax system and under the Cain 999 Plan.  These examples cover income levels from $25,000 to $1 million per year.  Please refer to the second half of this report to view this information. 

**If you do not care about the background details of the 999 Plan, and you mainly want to know how much a family making $75,000 per year (for example) would save under the Cain 999 Plan, please go straight to the section entitled “Section VIII. Comparison… ”   

 

I.  THE NEED FOR TAX REFORM

True tax reform is essential to bring our economy out of the recession and promote growth.  Far-reaching tax reform is needed.  Simply cutting spending and raising taxes will not succeed.  As taxes are raised, growth slows; and the economy adjusts to a lower level of output.  Lower output means lower revenues; this would necessitate another round of spending cuts and tax increases.  To break the cycle, we must have a tax system that is more efficient and growth-oriented.   

We need to replace our loophole-ridden Tax Code with true pro-growth tax reform.  

A predictable, business-friendly tax system will encourage businesses to expand and create jobs because the job creators will know what to expect in the future — no surprises.  Herman Cain’s 999 Plan indeed is about “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.”  

We cannot continue to run annual deficits and add to the National Debt.  Today (10.21.11) our National Debt (Total Public Debt Outstanding) stands at $14.939 Trillion.  When Obama took office on 1.20.09, the National Debt was $10.627 Trillion.  This means the National Debt has increased by $4.3 Trillion in the 33 months he has been in office.  [$14.939 Trillion – $10.627 Trillion = $4.312 Trillion]

II.  INDIVIDUALS

Herman Cain’s creative 999 Plan includes a flat 9 % tax on Gross Income less Charitable Deductions.  The plan removes all payroll taxes (Social Security and Medicare), thereby saving taxpayers about 6 %.  Because the 999 Plan ends nearly all deductions and special interest favors, the Tax Code is drastically simplified; and tax preparation is facilitated.  It features no tax on capital gains and dividends. This means that double taxation of dividends is eliminated. 

The Plan also gets rid of  the onerous Death Tax (Estate Tax).  Repeal of the death tax would restore the American Dream that if you work hard and live a virtuous life, you can pass the fruits of your labor to succeeding generations of your family without fear that the government will take it away from them.

 

III.  CORPORATIONS

The 999 Plan imposes a flat tax on businesses of 9 %.  It starts with gross income, then deducts all investments and all purchases from other businesses.  Finally it deducts all dividends paid to shareholders.  Thereby, corporate tax rates would be lowered from a high marginal tax rate of 38 % (or 35 %) to 9 %. 

A chart from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) shows the corporate tax rate for the period from 1999 to 2009.  The U.S. corporate tax rate held steady at 39.4% to 39.1% during those years.  In the same period, the OECD countries reduced their average corporate tax rate from 34.8% to 26.3%.  The United States is simply not competitive.

Link to OECD chart:  http://www.heritage.org/Research/Reports/2010/08/Tax-Reform

The Cain 999 Plan’s U.S. corporate tax rate would be well below any foreign country.  The new corporate tax rate of 9 % eliminates the incentive to move businesses and jobs overseas, and foreign companies would scramble to do business here.  Because exports would leave our shore without the Business Tax or Sales Tax embedded in their cost, our products would become very competitive.  

With no tax on repatriated profits, those funds would flow back into this country. [Example:  If a U.S. computer manufacturer does business in France and makes a profit, it can move that profit (repatriate) from France  back to the U.S. ] 

Large U.S. multinational corporations have hundreds of billions of dollars in foreign profits.  In recognition of the problem, a bill before Congress (the Hagan-McCain bill) will incentivize the repatriation of up to $1.4 trillion in foreign earnings.  When these earnings are brought back into the U.S., the economy will be boosted and investment increased. 

A predictable, business-friendly tax system will encourage businesses to expand and create jobs because the job creators will know what to expect in the future — no surprises.  Herman Cain’s 999 Plan indeed is about “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.”

IV.  NATIONAL SALES TAX

The element of the 999 Plan that gets the most attention is the national sales tax of 9 %.  Unlike a state sales tax, this is a replacement tax; it replaces taxes that are already embedded in the selling prices.  Under the 999 Plan, prices should be the same or lower.

Some people have incorrectly stated that Cain’s 999 Plan imposes a Value-Added Tax (VAT).  Nothing could be further from the truth.  The national sales tax applies the 9 % tax at the final point of sale; whereas, the European-style VAT imposes a tax at every step in the production process, from raw material to finished product.  A VAT would be an absolute disaster 

V.  CURRENT U. S. REVENUE  

People rightly wonder if the 999 Plan will work.  Will the 999 Plan raise enough revenue to cover the government’s expenses?  This question needs to be addressed in a rational manner.  

The federal government operates on a fiscal year basis.  Federal fiscal years end on September 30 and are identified by the calendar year in which they end.  For example, Fiscal Year 2011 (FY 2011) ended on 9.30.11; we are now in Fiscal Year 2012.  

The U. S. government derives its income (revenue) primarily from taxes.   Revenue varies from about $2 trillion in a poor year to about $2.5 trillion in a good year.  Total revenue for Fiscal Year 2011 is estimated at $2.3 trillion.  The sources of revenue are shown below:  

Sources:  Congressional Budget Office (CBO), Fiscal Year 2011, October 7, 2011, and Department of the Treasury

Note:  Figures may not add exactly due to rounding.  

Based on the above CBO table, the following table is derived:  

From this table, you can see that 83 % of the revenue is derived from individual income taxes and social insurance taxes (47 % + 36 % = 83 %).  We often think that corporations pay a huge amount of tax; actually, they provide only 8 % of the total revenues.

 VI.  HERMAN CAIN’S REVENUE NEUTRAL 999 PLAN  

One of the most important hurdles for any tax reform plan is that it must be “revenue neutral.”  [Definition:  The tax plan raises as much revenue as the current tax system.]   

The best measure of our economy is given by the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).  The Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States.    Current GDP figures are shown in the following table:  

 Source:  Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), BEA 11-49, Gross Domestic Product, Second Quarter 2011 (Third Estimate), September 29, 2011.  

http://www.bea.gov/newsreleases/national/gdp/2011/pdf/gdp2q11_3rd.pdf  

Herman Cain’s 999 Plan is revenue neutral.  This means it raises about the same revenue as our present complicated tax system.  Based on GDP figures, a reasonable (static) estimate is shown in the following table:  

As you can see, the estimated revenue of $2.23 trillion generated under the 999 Plan is very close to the $2.30 trillion of revenue produced under our present tax system.  Thus, the 999 Plan is definitely “revenue neutral.”   

VII.  IMPACT OF THE 999 PLAN  

Cain’s 999 Plan would provide a huge drop in the income tax rates for individuals.  The plan will lower the highest marginal tax rate from 35 % to 9 %.  (It would lower it from 35 % to 18 % if we include the 9 % sales tax.)  The plan eliminates payroll taxes, death taxes, taxes on dividends and capital gains, and numerous hidden taxes.  By ending the payroll taxes (Social Security and Medicare), we will get a permanent payroll tax holiday.

Herman Cain’s economic adviser Rich Lowrie emphasizes that the mammoth drop in marginal tax rates would supply an incredibly strong growth incentive across the entire economy.  The 999 Plan would add $2 trillion to the GDP, create six million jobs, increase business investment by a third, and lift wages by 10 percent.  “And if you fold all that growth together,” said Lowrie, “federal revenues go up by 15 percent.”

The marginal tax rate is the rate on the last dollar of income earned. This is very different from the average tax rate, which is the total tax paid as a percentage of total income earned.  Our tax system has a number of tax brackets (e.g., 10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33%, and 35%).  For example, if you are a “Married Taxpayer Filing a Joint Return” and you make $75,000, you are paying a marginal rate of 25%.  Income below each threshold pays the lower rate; income above the cutoff point pays the higher marginal rate.  

A report by Fiscal Associates, Inc. indicated that a plan of this nature would give a huge boost to the economy.  GDP would increase by $2 trillion,  hours worked would be 4.4 % higher, wage rates will be 10 % higher, and there would be 6 million more jobs!  Also total federal revenue would be nearly 15 % higher.  

A predictable, business-friendly tax system will encourage businesses to expand and create jobs because the job creators will know what to expect in the future — no surprises.  Herman Cain’s 999 Plan indeed is about “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.”  

**VIII.  COMPARISON BETWEEN PRESENT TAX SYSTEM AND CAIN’S 999 PLAN

Nine scenarios will illustrate how the Cain 999 Plan compares with our present complicated tax system.  I have provided a comparison that begins at a lower income level and progresses to upper income levels.  If your income is not represented, you could easily insert your numbers (and your deductions) into the models shown.  To keep it simple, the examples use round numbers and typical deductions.  If you use different assumptions, you will get different results.

Herman Cain’s 999 Plan eliminates all payroll taxes (Social Security and Medicare).  In order to correctly compare Cain’s plan with our current tax system, payroll tax (approximately 6% of income) must be added to the current tax system side of the ledger.  Because the 999 Plan imposes a new 9% national sales tax, this figure must be included on the 999 side.

Please refer to Example #1 (Mary) below.  Her total tax under the present system is $1,900.  Along with her income tax of $1,900, she pays a “hidden” Social Security tax of $1,412.  (This $1,412 is deducted from her paychecks by her employer.)  When you add the $1,412 Social Security (SS) tax to the $1,900 income tax, you get a Total Tax of $3,312 (under the present tax system).

The Cain 999 national sales tax is handled in a similar way.  Under the Cain Plan, Mary will pay 9% of her taxable income of $25,000 ($2,250) as an income tax.  She will spend about $1,260 on the Cain national sales tax as she makes purchases throughout the year.  Her Total Tax under Cain would be $2,250 + $1,260 = $3,510.

The following tables are based on projected  2011 Tax Rates; final 2011 Tax Rates may be different.  The Social Security Tax Rates are 4.20% for employees (6.20% for employers); the Medicare Tax Rates are 1.45% for employees (same for employers).  The self-employed Tax Rates are 10.40% for Social Security and 2.90% for Medicare.

Under Cain’s Plan, the 9 % national sales tax does not apply to all expenditures.  Non-taxable items include: mortgage or rent payments, auto loan or lease payments, auto repairs (excluding parts), services, tuition, used items of any type, saving and investing.  To account for these factors, a consistent percentage (56%) is applied in all of the examples.  The net spendable income (Gross Income – Charitable Contributions) is multiplied by 56% to get the tax base.  The 9% sales tax is applied to this tax base.


Under the 999 Plan, Mary, who makes $25,000 per year, would pay about $198 more than under the current system.  [$3,510 – $3,312 = $198] 
 

 

 

Under the 999 Plan, Bruce and Alice, who make $50,000 per year, would pay about $44 more than under the current system.  [$6,669 – $6,625 = $44]    

Under the 999 Plan, Larry and Gail, who make $75,000 per year, would save about $16.  [$9,493 – $9,477 = $16] 

 Under the 999 Plan, Dave and Rose, who make $100,000 per year, would save $792.  [$14,130 – $13,338 = $792] 

 

Under the 999 Plan, Bob and Ann, who make $200,000 per year, would save $7,335.  [$34,011 – $26,676 = $7,335]

  Under the 999 Plan, Paul and Carol, who make $300,000 per year, would save $14,017.  [$51,925 – $37,908 = $14,017]    

Under the 999 Plan, Ken and Amy, who make $375,000 per year, would save $25,267.  [$63,175 – $37,908 = $25,267]  

Example #8 — Rich & Alice ($1 Million, Married, w/ 2 Children) 

($700,000 in Ordinary Income & $300,000 in Investment Income)


Under the 999 Plan, Rich and Alice, who make $1 million per year, would save $101,107.  [$178,327 – $77,220 = $101,107]  
 

Example #9 — Craig & Diane ($1 Million, Married)

(No Charitable Contribution & No Investment Income)

Under the 999 Plan, Craig and Diane, who make $1 million per year, would save $157,368.  [$297,768 – $140,400 = $157,368]

 A predictable, business-friendly tax system will encourage businesses to expand and create jobs because the job creators will know what to expect in the future — no surprises.  Herman Cain’s 999 Plan indeed is about “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.” 

IX.  COMMENTARY ON EXAMPLES  

The following table summarizes the salient information from the nine examples:    

Comparison Table — Present Tax System vs. Cain 999 Plan 

Under Herman Cain’s 999 Plan:

1.  Mary, who makes $25,000 per year, would pay about $198 more than under the current system.  [$3,510 – $3,312 = $198]

2.  Bruce and Alice, who make $50,000 per year, would pay about $44 more than under the current  system.  [$6,669 – $6,625 = $44]

3.  Larry and Gail, who make $75,000 per year, would save about $16.  [$9,493 – $9,477 = $16]

4.  Dave and Rose, who make $100,000 per year, would save $792.  [$14,130 – $13,338 = $792]

5.  Bob and Ann, who make $200,000 per year, would save $7,335. [$34,011 – $26,676 = $7,335]

6.  Paul and Carol, who make $300,000 per year, would save $14,017.  [$51,925 – $37,908 = $14,017]

7.  Ken and Amy, who make $375,000 per year, would save $25,267.  [$63,175 – $37,908 = $25,267]

8.  Rich and Alice, who make $1 million per year, would save $101,107.  [$178,327 – $77,220 = $101,107]

9.  Craig and Diane, who make $1 million per year, would save $157,368.  [$297,768 – $140,400 = $157,368]

What do these examples reveal?  Taxes for an average family in the lower to middle income levels would be about the same under the Cain 999 Plan.  The great news is, however, that Americans would have jobs!

As income rises, the Cain 999 Plan offers more tax savings.  This is the expected result because these are the people who create the jobs for the rest of us!

Our present tax system is very progressive, which means people in the higher income levels pay taxes at a higher rate than the lower income levels (e.g., 35% at the highest level versus 10% at the lowest level).

In the $200,000 to $1 million range, these examples show that people can expect a 22% to 57% savings, when compared with the present tax system. [$34,011 – $26,676 = $7,335; and $7,335 / $34,011 = 22%]

A predictable, business-friendly tax system will encourage businesses to expand and create jobs because the job creators will know what to expect in the future — no surprises.  Herman Cain’s 999 Plan indeed is about “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.”  

X.  TAX BREAKS FOR THE JOB CREATORS 

Some people are declaring that Herman Cain’s 999 Plan is simply more tax breaks for the rich.  How should we answer this charge? 

With the 2012 elections looming, Obama is promoting class warfare and taking aim at America’s job creators.  He is setting his sights on the top 10 percent of earners in America, those people who already pay 70 % of federal taxes.

Obama likes to harp on “tax breaks for the rich.”  Of course, he is referring to eliminating the so-called Bush tax cuts on the top wage earners (those earning more than $200,000 as single filers or $250,000 as married couples).  The Heritage Foundation’s Cutis Dubay explains:

          The new revenue would come from allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire for families and small businesses earning more than $250,000 a year, limiting their deductions, and the President’s new “Buffett Rule” that would further raise these job creators’ taxes in some way which the President has not defined.  He also wants to eliminate deductions, credits, and exemptions.  This is a war the President is waging on success — as if so-called fat cats were the root of our spending problems.

http://blog.heritage.org/2011/09/20/morning-bell-1-5-trillion-in-new-taxes/

A few facts are in order.  The non-partisan Tax Policy Center released a report in 2009 that found almost half (47 %) of American households pay no income taxes.  In fact, many will come out ahead because they qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit.  That might explain why Gallup found that 48 % of Americans said the amount they pay in federal income taxes is “about right.”  It would also explain why Democrats typically court that voting block. 

Median federal income has increased by 33 % since 1970 but federal spending has soared by 221 % since then (about seven times faster). 

Who pays the taxes?  The top 20 % of wage earners made 56 % of all pre-tax income yet paid 86 % of federal income taxes.  The farther you go up the income ladder, the greater the tax burden you will pay.  According to the IRS, the top 1 % of taxpayers paid more than 40 % of all federal income taxes.  That is more than the bottom 95 % combined paid.

At some point, the “rich” will simply decide that enough is enough.  They could choose to work less, retire completely, or move out of the country.  Obama is trying to incite class warfare – the rich against the poor.  It is an old ploy, but it will not work.  The federal government cannot play Robin Hood and continue to tax the rich and give to the poor.  Income redistribution may appeal to the Democrats, but it is lousy for our country.

Obama’s plan is straightforward – soak the top-earning households in America – those earning more than $200,000 as single filers or $250,000 as married couples.  According to the IRS data, that “tiny, wealthy minority” encompasses more than 4.3 million households.  When you count spouses, children, and other dependents, you are talking about 12.5 million Americans. 

Also many of the small businesses fall into this category.  (Roughly two thirds of small businesses are taxed at this rate.)  We know that small businesses create the majority of jobs in America, yet they are being targeted for tax increases.

Raising taxes during a recession has never been viewed as a sensible policy.  The economy is stuck in neutral, and we need to put it in gear.  A tax increase at this time would have a very chilling effect on the economy.  Tax relief across the full breadth of income levels is the needed approach; and along with that, our country must cut the spending. 

A predictable, business-friendly tax system will encourage businesses to expand and create jobs because the job creators will know what to expect in the future — no surprises.  Herman Cain’s 999 Plan indeed is about “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.”  

XI.  REVIEWS OF CAIN’S 999 PLAN  

Overall the plan has been received very well by the American public.  Larry Kudlow writes:

          Congressman Paul Ryan gives the plan a thumbs-up. Supply-side mentor Art Laffer tells me it would be “far, far better than the current system.” And Chris Chocola, president of the free-market Club for Growth, calls it “a truly revolutionary tax reformthat would amount to a massive job-creating tax cut on investments, savings, and income.”

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/280200/cain-tax-code-killer-larry-kudlow

For those who doubt the effectiveness of lowering the tax rates, please remember what happened when John F. Kennedy made the tax cuts in the 1960s and Ronald Reagan instituted tax cuts in the 1980s.  Those tax reductions kicked the economic growth into high gear!  Because Art Laffer was Ronald Reagan’s economic guru, he should have a good idea about how to stimulate our economy. 

“I love the 9-9-9 plan, it’s a great first step,” Laffer told Fox News’ Bret Baier. “This is a lot better than our current tax laws that are filled with all sorts of ducks, chickens, pigs and turkeys. They’ve just got to be cleaned out and we’ve got to completely revamp the codes.”

Chris Chocola commented:

          Herman Cain’s proposal might not be the perfect plan, but it is a truly revolutionary tax reform that would amount to a massive job creating tax cut on investments, savings, and income.

          Much of the criticism of the plan has been the idea of a new sales tax, which critics fear would be bound to grow. But Chocola dismissed those fears. ‘Of course a future Congress could raise taxes above the 9 percent levels, but under our current monstrosity of a tax system, Congress already can raise taxes at any time and often has. It is on a path to do so yet again next year with the expiration of the Bush tax cuts.’

Larry Kudlow’s article continues:

          Former Treasury hands Gary and Aldona Robbins priced out the Cain plan on a static basis and discovered it to be revenue neutral.  Essentially they found a $26 trillion tax base yielding $2.3 trillion in revenue for a 9.1 percent overall rate. Hence, 9-9-9. 

More support came from Douglas Holtz-Eakin, the former director of the Congressional Budget Office.  “I don’t think it’s dramatically out of line with reality,” he told Bloomberg. 

Alan Viard, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, which favors smaller government, said the revenue estimates were “in the ballpark in some vague sense.”

Some people oppose the Cain 999 Plan because they think it would hurt low-income and middle-income people.  The Cain plan deals with this by exempting everyone below the poverty line.  Also the plan includes additional deductions for businesses and individuals in Empowerment Zones; these will help to revitalize our inner cities. Within these zones, special deductions will be allowed to encourage businesses to relocate there and create the needed jobs. 

A predictable, business-friendly tax system will encourage businesses to expand and create jobs because the job creators will know what to expect in the future — no surprises.  Herman Cain’s 999 Plan indeed is about “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.”

CONCLUSION

The savings under Cain’s 999 Plan would help to unleash massive growth in our economy and drastically cut our unemployment rate because these higher-income people would undoubtedly use their savings under the 999 Plan to open new businesses and create jobs.   The Wall Street Journal’s Stephen Moore said Cain’s 9-9-9 plan for simplifying our horrendous and highly politicized tax code would be “… rocket fuel for the economy.”

A report by Fiscal Associates, Inc. indicated that the plan would give a huge boost to the economy, creating 6 million more jobs!  In this recession, we certainly need jobs 

Higher-income people will not make the critical investments unless there is some stability.  Businesses need stability and predictability.  Obama flatly stated that he would block renewal of the “Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthy” when they expire at the end of 2012.  He wants to impose a tax hike on the very people who generate growth and create jobs.  The federal government has imposed thousands ofburdensome regulations and Obamacare has dramatically increased the cost of doing business.  Why would a person or business invest capital in this kind of business climate?  

A lot of capital (maybe $2 trillion) is sitting on the sidelines.   A business will expand and hire new people if the federal government will get out of the way and establish the right conditions.   Stability and true pro-growth tax reform will create jobs 

A predictable, business-friendly tax system will encourage businesses to expand and create jobs because the job creators will know what to expect in the future — no surprises.  Herman Cain’s 999 Plan indeed is about “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.”  

When we are discussing tax cuts, a little history can be very instructive. 

President Reagan walked into the White House in 1981 and inherited a terrible economy — the worst since the Great Depression. The inflation rate was 12 %, and the interest rate was 21 %. Very high taxes were discouraging job creation and investment. What did Reagan do?  

 Even though the House was controlled by the Democrats during the entire time President Reagan held office, he was such a skilled leader that he managed early in 1981 to convince Congress to implement across-the-board tax cuts and also to cut red tape.  This strategy lowered the top income tax rates and encouraged people to take risks on new businesses, new systems, and new inventions.  

 When people’s incomes started rising, taxpayers were able to pay a bigger share of taxes; and that poured money into the government’s coffers.  

 It was President Reagan’s wise decision-making and expert leadership that caused our country to experience a 20-year period of creative entrepreneurship, and the U. S. economy tripled in size.  

We can learn from history.  Growth-oriented tax reform is a powerful tool!  

A predictable, business-friendly tax system will encourage businesses to expand and create jobs because the job creators will know what to expect in the future — no surprises.  Herman Cain’s 999 Plan indeed is about “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.”
