Herman Cain 2012
Herman Cain is a newspaper columnist, businessman, political activist, and radio talk-show host from Georgia. He is best known as the former chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. He is a former deputy chairman and chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.
Cain has been cited as one of the primary “saboteurs” of the 1993/1994 health care plan of Hillary “the Monster” Clinton.
Cain transformed the debate when he challenged Clinton at a town meeting in Kansas City, Cain asked the president what he was supposed to say to the workers he would have to lay off because of the cost of the “employer mandate.” Clinton responded that there would be plenty of subsidies for small businessmen, but Cain persisted. “Quite honestly, your calculation is inaccurate,” he told the president. “In the competitive marketplace it simply doesn’t work that way.”
Cain was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer in both his colon and his liver. Cain underwent surgery and chemotherapy following the diagnosis, and has since reported that he is cancer-free
