Herman Cain to Join Joe Wurzelbacher for Ohio Events
(Atlanta)  A familiar name has joined Herman Cain's ever-growing "9-9-9 The Revolution". The former businessman and former presidential frontrunner today announced that Joe Wurzelbacher, a.k.a. 'Joe the Plumber', has pledged his support for Cain's 9-9-9 economic growth and jobs plan.
Wurzelbacher is running as a Republican in Ohio's 9th Congressional District. The seat has been held by Democrat Marcy Kaptur for 30 years, and due to redistricting, she will face 10th District Representative Dennis Kucinich in the March 6th Primary election.
A simple, honest and bold question posed in 2008 to then-candidate Barack Obama about his small business tax plan launched the Ohio plumber into the national spotlight. Obama's answer that  spreading the wealth around is “good for everybody” exposed the presidential hopeful for harboring a dangerous socialist agenda. Now, as a Congressional candidate, 'Joe the Plumber'   wants to fight back after spending the “last 3 years watching now-President Obama make good on his threat of spreading the wealth around.”
On this battle, Wurzelbacher has an ally in Cain. In fact, a January 14, 2012 post in the Daily Beast favorably compared the two:
“Wurzelbacher shares with Cain an appetite for devolving power from the federal government to the states—and a zeal for tax reform. He, too, would like to blow up the federal income tax...In its place, Wurzelbacher favors a fair tax and a flat tax, and proclaims that Cain’s infamous “9-9-9” plan is better than “what we have now.”
Cain agrees and welcomes 'Joe the Plumber''s simple, honest and bold attitude to “9-9-9 The Revolution”.
“Joe is an unconventional candidate, just like I was,” Cain remarked. “He shows a true working man's appreciation for what it is to be a good steward of the hard-earned money the government takes from us in the form of taxes.”
“Joe the Plumber agrees that 'blowing up' the current federal tax code is paramount to the success of this nation.” Cain also joked, “And we have seen first hand he's not afraid to tell the president so.”
Wurtzelbacher's support adds his name to a list of more than a dozen 2012 U.S. Candidates who are committed to thoroughly reading the '9-9-9' legislation that is being drafted, and then working to make '9-9-9' the law of the land.
Cain and Wurtzelbacher will ride the “Cain Revolution” bus through Ohio on Friday, February 24 for a series of scheduled stops on Joe the Plumber's “Jobs for Ohio” tour. Among the appearances:
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM                                      5:45 PM – 6:30 PM

Cain: "Another Voice Will Boldly Speak for 'We the People' in Washington, D.C."

(Atlanta) "9-9-9 The Revolution" has added yet another name to its ever-growing "army of 'Davids'"". Today, businessman and former presidential frontrunner Herman Cain announced that U.S. Senate candidate Pete Hoekstra (R-Holland) has pledged support for Cain's 9-9-9 tax reform plan.  

Hoekstra is running for the Senate seat currently held by Debbie Stabenow, a Democrat who Cain says has only perpetuated the failures of the Obama administration. "With her consistent voting pattern on economically disastrous legislation such as Obamacare and stimulus, Sen. Stabenow has a proven track record of aligning with failure," Cain said. "This is why we need bold leadership to stand up to the Goliath that has become our government. This is why we need candidates who are not afraid to give their power back to the people where it belongs."

"Adopting my '9-9-9' tax plan is one way to do just that," Cain added. "I'm delighted to have Pete on board with '9-9-9' The Revolution."

Hoekstra's formal support means he is committed to thoroughly reading the '9-9-9' legislation that is being drafted, and then working to make '9-9-9' the law of the land.

"I have long been a supporter of the fair tax but have to give Herman Cain credit for coming up with a simple solution to improve our tax code that the American people can support," Hoekstra said. "I'm ready to do what I can as a member of the U.S. Senate to bring common sense solutions like '9-9-9' to the American People and end the tax code as we know it."

Hoekstra's formal endorsement brings the number of '9-9-9'-supporting candidates to more than a dozen - a number that continues to grow on a near-daily basis.

Mr. Cain will join Hoekstra for the launch of his 'Patriots for Pete Tour' with Herman Cain on Thursday, February 23. Scheduled grassroots event stops include: 

9:00 AM - 10:00 AM                                     4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Kent County GOP Headquarters                   Big Sky Diner
725 Lake Michigan Drive NW                       1340 Ecorse Road
Grand Rapids, MI                                          Ypsilanti, MI
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM                                     7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Radisson Hotel                          Polish Cultural Center
100 West Michigan Ave.                               2975 East Maple Road
Kalamazoo, MI                                             Troy, MI

Ron Paul Leads Obama in Key Swing State of Iowa PDF Print E-mail

Holds largest margin of victory among GOP rivals
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul beats President Barack Obama in a head-to-head matchup in the key swing state of Iowa according to the latest Des Moines Register Iowa Poll.

Congressman Paul bests President Obama 49-42 percent, the largest margin of victory for any of the other GOP contenders. Obama would beat Newt Gingrich 51 percent to 37 percent, while Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney would beat Obama by four percent and two percent, respectively, both within the +/- 4 percent margin of error for the poll. In 2008 President Barack Obama beat Senator John McCain by nearly 10 percent in Iowa.

Notably, Paul wins 55 percent of the under-30 vote, a demographic that Obama won 66 percent of in Iowa in the 2008 general election.

“This is just more evidence of the fact that Ron Paul is the only candidate who can beat Barack Obama,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton. “In order to win back the White House Republicans must nominate a candidate who can provide stark contrast with the failings of the current administration and Ron Paul is the only candidate advocating for something other than the dismal, status quo policies.”

The poll surveyed 611 likely Iowa voters between February 12th and 15th.

Full poll results can be found here.

“Mr. Boortz may be the ‘Mighty Whitey’, but as his listeners know I’m the 'The Dean of the University of Common Sense.’ and I’m color blind,” joked Cain of his old friend and radio colleague. “I spent three years hosting my own talk show at WSB. It will be good to be back ‘home’. I promise that Boortz’s listeners will not be disappointed.”

In fact, listeners will be treated to Mr. Cain’s startling take on President Obama’s newly proposed budget. “I have this budget pegged for the atrocity that it is, in just three numbers,” Cain said. “And they’re not 9-9-9.

Be sure to mark your calendars as well in March. Mr. Cain will again guest host the Neal Boortz Radio Show March 1st, 3rd, 19th and 20th.
