Image by Getty Images via @daylife Herman Cain seems to be modifying his 9-9-9 plan. The original plan was obviously a massive tax increase on the middle and lower classes. Even the Tea Party people would eventually have figured that out and voted for someone else. I would not vote for Herman Cain because he does not seem to have the over all capabilities required of a President and of course he is one of those misguided Republicans. Mitt Romney would appear to be the best choice if the Republicans want to win back the Presidency.
If Romney did manage to win he would be greatly hampered in his policy decisions by the frighteningly ignorant Tea Party wing of the Republican party. Romney had some excellent ideas regarding health care when he was a governor but he would never be able to do anything reasonable in the current political climate. I sympathize with some Tea Party social policy ideas but they would destroy what is left of this country if they ever achieved unchecked power. It is simply not sensible to take extreme positions and not negotiate with the other political party. The Tea Party appears to me to be unreasonable in their economic views and immoral on health care for people who need help.
It is wrong not to help a person requiring health care if they are in need. I would be willing to bet that most Tea Party members would help someone if they saw the situation first hand but we live in a society with obligations to its citizens and we are morally obligated to support the government when it takes care of people in need. Maybe if Herman Cain used all his new projected tax revenues to support a sensible health care policy, he might be worth a second look.
