History In July 2011, an advisor suggested that his campaign's tax policy plan be called "the Optimal Tax", but Cain rejected the name, saying "[w]e're just going to call it what it is: 9–9–9 Plan."<ref name="WSJ-999">John D. McKinnon, Cain Plan's Reagan-Era Roots The Wall Street Journal October 14, 2011</ref> The plan would replace the current tax code with a 9-percent business transactions tax, a 9-percent personal income tax, and a 9-percent federal sales tax. During a debate on October 12, Cain said his plan "expands the base," arguing that "[w]hen you expand the base, we can arrive at the lowest possible rate, which is 9–9–9."<ref name="Bloomberg-999">Steven Sloan and Richard Rubin, Cain Reveals 9-9-9 Math With Projection of No Revenue Loss Bloomberg News October 13, 2011</ref>
