Well it's April 15 you know what that usually means though the -- we actually have two more days to file our taxes but next year taxes are set to go up.
So tomorrow there will be a rally on Capitol Hill calling for a change to the American tax code to try and get the economy moving again.
It sponsor -- -- connections as a political group now run by former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain.
Who joins us now from Washington on the eve of his rally mystic and welcome to Fox News Channel the Sunday morning thanks Eric -- we're happy to be here great to see you as always wanted to pick what will you be calling for tomorrow when you gather on Capitol Hill.
It's real simple replays the tax code.
The tax code is night in nine years old this year and next year going to be a hundred years old.
And so for the hundred year birthday of the tax code I wanna say and American people wanna say bye bye to the -- go.
We've known for decades.
That our tax code is one of the worst in the world so we want it to -- home the point.
That don't start with reform because that's just rearranged in the chip and a -- that that Teddy.
We need to replace it and obviously you know that I want to replace it with the 999 plan.
You know you talk about the nine on mine plan he ran for president on that and and that's not going away.
It's not gone away this is why I started.
McCain's solutions revolution what I -- when out of the candidate is that the American people they.
My solutions -- resonating with -- Why shouldn't loves to talk about problems and move things around but they really lack the ability to fix things but with -- Pressure from the American people.
Which is this huge grassroots movement that we'll building we already have oval 400000 people who sign up on my web site.
Herman Cain dot com what they can get information about the rally on Monday is going to be from one to 3 PM on state and senate park at the capitol you won't be able to miss it.
That would be thousands of people there but go to my website or McCain but not dot com want to make people want things to be states and that's what -- connections is all of.
-- you know what's gonna happen he'll be out there -- -- and that chant it was signs and and the senators and then that the IRS bureaucracy they're going to be in their offices like this and allow allow.
-- listen and not here or not that's gonna change so how -- effectively actually achieve some success in trying just streamline.
Reform or change the tax code realistically.
Two ways first we have a program called -- Nan Nan -- adoption program.
We already have nearly 35 people run at the congress who have already adopted the -- -- -- plane.
It's been well research we've school would it static -- dynamically so first thing is we get people to commit to it.
Before they go to watch it and not try to convince them after they get that secondly.
The difference this travel round.
Verse of the flat tax back -- and I -- it's the fair tax all both of all the great solutions but they never went anywhere -- -- They didn't have the people the put the heat on its former -- -- -- Dirksen who -- it when they feel the heat they will see the light.
Is to create the heat so congress -- both -- -- the president will see the light that we must start we have.
Replacing the tax code that's what's gonna be different this time around as fast and you actually -- have candidates and -- I mean people really running.
Yes it on your platform.
In general though lets -- take a look at some of the numbers I covered you a year ago -- New Hampshire on tax day.
Back then that the unemployment or it was nine point 0% look it's gotten better eight point two.
Although they say a lot of people have given up Dowd Dow Jones average look 12100341.
You know by 500 so it's a 107 points out looks better -- it did pocket thirteen thousand this down a little bit now.
But take a look at this there's the national debt clock one year ago when you're in New Hampshire.
Fourteen point two trillion dollar debt now what's the -- at fifteen.
And -- plus it's one and a half trillion dollars more.
What do we do about back.
Well let's first talk about the unemployment rate.
The reason that the number of looks better is because the administration has chosen to -- -- -- those people that have given up if you add those people backing him.
The real unemployment rate is closer to 11%.
It -- you talk about the Dow Jones average of being an up his -- up very.
Because companies are making more money in -- foreign ownership entities then they are at home.
They cannot make it more money at home in the United States that -- the Dow is respond to that and relative to the debt.
This is the most out of control in -- aspect about this administration what's going all went before President Obama got elected.
He made the statement and I quote.
He expects that the national debt will go down about 50% -- in his first term well it's almost the end of his first -- Guess what it has gone up about -- -- percent.
It is out of control and the United States senate -- -- Harry Reid's leadership.
And this president and this administration they have absolutely no intention of stopping this runaway debt.
We have to change the administration and -- to opt in of the White House and take back control of the senate.
And that's what -- solutions revolution is all about now -- there's there's a message -- candle in the they're going to be here in Amman capital where -- missed -- as you thank you -- -- on Sunday morning for trying to do very.
