Whether you are for or against his plan, the realization is that his or any other radical change in our tax structure isn't going to happen.It might even work, but it ain't gonna happen.I could drone on for hours as to why it will never be implemented but to be honest, it's exhausting, and would fall upon deaf and ignorant ears.

What we really need is the second coming of Ronald Reagan to save our bacon...but I don't see him.

It is funny that 16% of democrats wish for a return of Reagon and 65% of Republicans and 28% of independants. Not anybody wanting Obama back.

Great Idea!!! 9-9-9 tax plan. But what happens to all the other taxes- school,property,sales tax,gasoline tax,phone tax etc.etc. etc.? Do these all go away? Probably not.
