ORLANDO, Fla.-- It's too bad they don't allow props at presidential debates.

Hardly a day goes by on the campaign trail that presidential candidate Herman Cain doesn't mention his "9-9-9 Plan" for economic growth, which he claims would spur investment and create jobs.

The plan is meant to be simple: It would scrap the existing tax code and replace it with a three different 9 percent tax rates: a personal income tax, a corporate income tax and a federal sales tax.

Cain sat down with The Ticket on Friday morning, grabbed all the salt and pepper shakers on the table and gave a little lesson in Cainomics.


Read the full plan here, or the Cliff's notes version from the Wall Street Journal.

We'll have the full interview available soon.
