It’s been a month since Herman Cain dropped out of the GOP presidential race, but the retired pizza chain executive is going back on the road.
Cain, who ended his campaign after being dogged by persistent allegations of sexual harassment and an affair, warned at the time that he wouldn’t fade from the spotlight, pledging to move forward with a “plan b” approach to push his policy ideas.
“The biggest comment that I got when I ended my candidacy was, ‘Keep 9-9-9 alive,’” Cain told Fox’s Sean Hannity in an interview last night.
He was referring to the 9-9-9 tax plan that he proposed as a candidate, which would do away with most of the existing tax code, replacing it with a flat 9% tax on personal income, business income and retail sales.
“The American people, the voters, a lot of the political rhetoric, they are sick and tired of it,” Cain said. “They want to hear about solutions. And the thing that didn’t happen in Iowa … is not enough [was] discussed about solutions.”
