Huntsman on 9-9-9 plan: ‘I thought it was the price of a pizza’ (Debate video)

Former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and Republican flavor of the month Herman Cain couldn’t stop talking about his 9-9-9 tax plan at tonight’s Washington Post-Bloomberg Republican presidential debate. And neither could the other candidates.

Even Jon Huntsman got in a crack, saying he thought the plan “was the price of a pizza.”

Huntsman’s always supportive daughters helpfully tweeted, “We would buy a $9.99 pizza. Sounds like Godfather pizza just found their new fall ad.”
