Dear Tea Party: I’ll do the math for you

9 + 6 = 15.

Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 Plan means all Floridians will be paying at least 15% sales tax. Cain’s 9% sales tax does not replace Florida’s 6% sales tax, it’s in addition to it. Florida allows local municipalities to charge up to an additional 1.5% sales tax for local initiatives, so here in Miami-Dade county 9+7.5=16.5

Right now, your food and medicine, lottery tickets and vitamins, are exempt from Florida sales tax. Your medical, dental, engineering, legal, banking, insurance, securities and construction services are not subject to Florida’s sales tax. Do you believe Herman Cain will continue to allow your Viagra a tax exemption?
