In Nevada, the Republican candidates fighting for the nomination to run for President of the United States in 2012 went at it with each other in yet another debate.

Cain had his unique tax plan attacked by Santorum and Bachmann. The Tax Policy Center reported that his plan could boost taxes for 84% of the population or the bulk of it could fall on the poorest Americans, increasing the distance between the lower and upper classes.

Romney discussed his health care plan and showed that his plan is a Medicaid extension and would simply insure more people with the current program in place.

Romney then argued with Perry over job creation and which state has been more successful in bringing new jobs recently.

Then things started to get off point when Perry began to accuse Romney of hiring illegal immigrants as workers. Then Perry and Santorum began to claim Romney said his health care plan should be the national plan when there is actually evidence of him saying the opposite.

With 2012 fast approaching, the Republican Party is waiting for the right candidate to step up and take the reigns of the party.
