    Just going by your logic.

    Actually, the Feds would have the authority to do this under the Interstate Commerce Clause of the Constitution...

    Though I live overseas, I come from a state with ZERO general sales tax...

    Why shouldn't a state be able to collect sales tax on goods you purchased from in their boundaries? If I drive over to the next state, I'll be charged their sales tax. Just because you were sitting in front of your computer doesn't mean you didn't purchase something from that state.

    You aren't, but the item you purchased has to cross the border on a truck.

    Just treat it the same as we do when ordering from a catalog or by mail as it is essentially the same thing.

    At one time I lived in Oregon near the California border. If I purchased something in California, all I had to do was show my Oregon Driver license and I wasn't charged Sales Tax..... it is still the same today.

    Just sayin’.

    Re: Democrats push for new Internet sales taxes

    So once upon a time (before the internet) people ordered things through catalogs. Sears, JCPenny, etc... of which sales tax had to be entered. Now I know this may not work for all the states but after going through a bunch of internet printable order forms - most require a % sales tax to be added. One from Michigan only identified Michigan residents to add sales tax - otherwise, MS, MI, CA and NJ order forms I reviewed required a % sales tax.

    How is ordering over the internet any different than ordering through an old time catalog?

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Like that ever happened.

    California does that by choice... it is their law... I suppose for CA, it is more important for them to draw you across the border, make purchases in their state and then return than to collect tax on it. The assumption is too that you engage in other business while there -- eating, etc. The same can't be said if you order something via the Internet...

    The Federal government has the right to regulate Internet commerce and if they want to pass a law ALLOWING states to collect their sales taxes, I see no Constitutional problem with it...
