That should be an interesting chat. Hopefully Hassett questions him about the sheer inconsistencies and flaws with the 9-9-9 approach, which should be viewed as crippling to it even if you accept Cain's tax policy preferences (ex: regressive tax reform). Is it too much to ask someone proposing such a radical policy proposal to actually reasonably understand it and be able to defend it? (Beyond just repeating over and over again- Read the plan. I'm right. Other analyses are wrong.)

But Hassett is generally too amenable in this kind of situation. Thank goodness Bill Gale, former CEA senior economist for H.W. Bush, is there for the follow-up panel.
