WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
Herman Cain preached a conservative message to about 50 student Republicans at USF Tampa Thursday afternoon. The former presidential candidate said heâ€™s starting a foundation called Solutions Revolution to figure out how to fix what he says President Obama broke.
Cain soared through his professional history from burger-flipping to pizza-baking with the enthusiasm of a motivational speaker. His final point to them though was to avoid liberals and make sure to vote out President Obama. Cain said the allegations of infidelity that forced him to drop out of the race were lies, but heâ€™s not mad. Instead, heâ€™s starting a political policy think tank to remedy the long list of problems, including immigration and national defense.
â€œWe have an economic crisis. This economy is not growing. We have a spending crisis â€“ nearly $16 trillion in debt. That represents $50,000 for every man, woman and child living in the United States of America. My fourth grandchild was born on New Yearâ€™s Day of this year and before he cried his first cry, he already owed $50,000.â€
Cain said he was compelled to get into politics after he spent some time hosting radio shows. And since his bid for president flopped, heâ€™s staying at it with this new campaign. His hope is to get rid of Obama, maintain a majority in the House and gain a majority in the Senate. Through his Solutions Revolution, Cain also continues to push his 9-9-9 plan that includes 9% national sales tax, corporate tax and flat tax on household incomes.
