Herman Cain to Newsmax: Nix Obamacare

Cain told Newsmax the government health-insurance law should be repealed “so we can introduce legislation that’s going to contain patient-centered, market driven reforms.”

The legislation should be accompanied by loser-pays laws to help bring down medical-liability claims, Cain said.

“Doctors tell me all the time that that’s at least a third of their costs that they incur as part of their medical-liability insurance,” he said. “They also say that they don’t like to practice defensive medicine.”

On the issue of illegal immigration, Cain told Newsmax he wants to empower the states so they can enforce their own policies.

“I wouldn’t have sued Arizona,” he said, referring to the backlash against the law known as SB 1070. “I would have sent them a medal.”

Border control remains the responsibility of the federal government, but in the absence of proper enforcement, the matter should be turned over to the states, Cain told Newsmax.

“We have got to close off our borders because if we do not, we are not going to be able to deal with the other problems of enforcing the laws that are here,” he said. “One of my proposals is to empower the states to deal with the illegals that are already here.”

Cain also promoted his “999 Plan” that includes a flat, 9-percent tax on business profits, personal income and national sales. The national sales tax would be implemented first if he becomes president.

“We expand the base, and we give everybody an opportunity to get used to paying a national sales tax before we go for the full throttle later,” he said. “You get people to see the positive impact on the economy and economic growth before you take that next big step.”
