He seems like an intelligent guy. However, his 999 plan is awful. Economists bash it and rightly so. I can support a flat tax because I believe everyone should pay their fair share and far too many Americans get away with paying nothing. However, a 9% federal sales tax is awful on top of a state sales tax. Here in NJ we pay 7% state sales tax add 9% and you are looking at 16% try buying a 20k car which would be $21400 now would go up to $23200. That would ruin the economy not stimulate it. Who has an extra almost $2000 to pay the government to buy a car. It is not just major purchases that would be effected either think about all the little purchases we make that would cost more.
