Herman Cain is a savvy, successful business man. His tax plan shows an innovative mind, and with the plan, demonstrates he is clearly a visionary as well. This plan is just not about the re-distribution of wealth via a simplified tax code, but it has a new business model built in everyone will benefit from.

I am sure Herman Cain has recruited the Yes Men to work on this project, but I bet they will deny it. Here is a clip from their documentary and the proposal they screened:
It’s not only brilliant, but efficient! Three businesses in one –used food, re-cycling and waste management. Venture capitalists are going to be all over this. Used Food Emporiums are now popping up all over America. Thanks to Mr. Cain’s vision and entrepreneurial expertise, God Father’s Pizza will have a new product RePizza.
