Santorum dings Cain’s 9-9-9 plan

Rick Santorum’s only had two chances to talk tonight - as he pointed out - but he’s making the most of them. To our ears, Santorum’s had the most effective attack so far on Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan, by asking the (famously tax averse) New Hampshire audience: “How many people here are for a sales tax?”

He has also driven the point home repeatedly that his experience in Washington gives him a more realistic sense of what can actually pass - arguing previously that his jobs plan “would pass tomorrow.” And he used the same point to argue that Romney’s repeated claim that he would issue a waiver to the states on Obamacare is essentially meaningless.
