HERMAN CAIN’S 999 PLAN: Pre-tested In SimCity. “Long before Cain was running for president and getting attention for his 999 plan, the residents of SimCity 4 — which was released in 2003 — were living under a system where the default tax rate was 9 percent for commercial taxes, 9 percent for industrial taxes and 9 percent for residential taxes. (That is, of course, if you didn’t use the cheat codes to get unlimited money and avoid taxes altogether.)”

What’s the code? “Kaiser?” “Immelt?”

UPDATE: Reader John Miller writes: “Would you rather have something gamed for eight years in SimCity, or scored in a week by the CBO?”
