Cain Says Similarity of Tax Plans Behind Gingrich Endorsement

Former GOP hopeful Herman Cain says current candidate Newt Gingrich's tax plan could start to look like his own 9-9-9 flat-tax proposal.

“He said he would seriously consider moving more toward mine,” Cain said Tuesday on NBC’s Today. Gingrich had told ABC News he would consider the plan but is unlikely to adopt the whole thing.

The similarity between the former House speaker’s proposals and Cain’s own are what made him decide to endorse the candidate, he said. Both would replace the tax code, take steps to make money sound and increase energy independence.

 

The Atlanta businessman said Gingrich did not lobby him for the endorsement, but that he did offer to co-chair a commission on jobs, economic growth and taxes, a position Cain said he would accept. He added that he was unlikely to run for president again.

Cain reiterated that he would support whichever nominee gets the eventual Republican nomination, and that he “could be very comfortable” with a Mitt Romney candidacy.
