The former pizza company executive laid out his plan for reviving the American economy during the rally in the parking lot of the Versailles restaurant in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood.

“What about freedom for Cuba?” a man in the crowd shouted.

“Freedom for Cuba now!” Cain replied and went back to outlining his plan to boost U.S. job creation.

He said he would throw out the current tax code and “Pass a new structure called ‘nueve, nueve, nueve’,” the Spanish numbers for his signature 9-9-9 tax proposal to levy a flat 9 percent corporate, income and sales tax.
