Cain on his lack of experience in public office: “Having political experience is not necessarily an asset.”
Cain on the difference between himself and Mitt Romney: “He
has been a Wall Street executive. I have been a Main Street executive,
because I have actually run small businesses. Individual restaurants. A
chain of restaurants. The National Restaurant Association. So I have
been closer to the pulse and the heartbeat medium-small businesses,
operationally, more so than him.”
Cain on whether his “999 plan” would be a burden on the poor: “If they’re not working, they’ve got a bigger problem than paying the national sales tax.”
Cain on the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York: “What
do they want? I don’t have facts to back this up, but I happen to
believe that these demonstrations are planned and orchestrated to
distract from the failed policies of the Obama administration. Don’t
blame Wall Street. Don’t blame the big bank. If you don’t have a job and
you’re not rich, blame yourself.”
