Next thing you know, those Democrats in the Senate are going to do something REALLY stupid like allow other countries to charge our citizens their tax rates on online sales or allow our States to charge people from other countries when they buy something online from the US.
Democrats really hate people and business, don't they.

The federal government shouldn't be in the business of enforcing state laws just like many don't want the states enforcing federal law--unless it is something they agree with.
We have had to pay taxes on items purhased from mail-order houses for many years. Now, the fact that we are going to have to pay them for internet purchases levels the playing field for businesses, whether they are on the intenet, in a mail order house, or down the street at the mall. The fact that products purchased over the internet were not taxed gave them an unfair advantage over other businesses. And, from a logic standpoint, this makes sense to me. This bill has been long overdue.
