Rivals target Cain tax plan in Republican debate

first_imgLAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican presidential contenders attacked upstart Herman Cain’s economic plan forcefully as a tax increase waiting to happen Tuesday night, moving swiftly in campaign debate to blunt the former businessman’s unlikely rise in the race for the party’s nomination.Yet old animosities flared anew, as well, as former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov.
