Rep. Michele Bachmann took a shot at Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan during the Oct. 11th GOP debate hosted by The Washington Post and Bloomberg.

BACHMANN: I would have to say the 9-9-9 plan isn't a jobs plan, it is a tax plan. and I would say from my experience being in Congress, but also as a federal tax lawyer, whey you, the last thing you would do is give Congress another pipeline of a revenue stream. And this gives Congress a pipeline in a sales tax, a sales tax that could also lead to a value added tax. The United States Congress put into place the Spanish American war tax in 1898. We only partially repealed that in 2006. so once you get a new revenue stream, you're never going to get rid of it.

And one thing I would say is when you take the 9-9-9 plan and you turn it upside down, I think the devil's in the details.
