Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain is taking his 9-9-9 plan somewhere new: Las Vegas.
Cain, whose tax plan became a sort of catch phrase during his run for the Republican presidential nomination, bet on his 9-9-9 plan at a buy-in poker table at the Wynn Las Vegas Encore Resort Thursday night, according to the New York Post. Cain reportedly shouted “Give me a 9-9-9!" in the heat of a three-card poker game.
In a statement to the NY Post, Cain confirmed he'd been gambling with his lucky number, saying "9-9-9 is not only a winning tax plan, it is also a winning poker hand." A spokesperson added that Cain "did win on a 9-9-9 hand" after placing the $10 minimum bet.
Cain's tax plan -- which is strikingly similar to the tax plan from SimCity 4 -- is simple: the corporate income tax rate would be 9 percent, the personal income tax rate would be 9 percent and the national sales tax rate would be 9 percent. Even after suspending his presidential campaign, Cain continued to push the plan with his "Cain's Solutions Revolution" movement, which aimed to "keep 9-9-9 alive."
