    Senate approves online sales tax bill [W:244]

    The Senate on Monday approved legislation that would for the first time allow states to collect billions of dollars in online sales tax revenue from out-of-state purchases.The 69-27 vote is a major victory for retail groups and state governments, who for years have fought to close what they see as a loophole that allows as much as $23 billion in annual taxes from online sales to go uncollected.

    “I’ve been saying it for the past 12 years,” lead sponsor Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) said ahead of the vote. “This bill is about fairness, it’s about leveling the playing field for brick-and-mortar shops.”

    This is shameful. The federal government does not have the authority to act to on these matters.

    The federal government does not have the authority to regulate interstate commerce? In what country?

    No trade dispute

    Nothing in this deals with defense or general welfare. Furthermore, its for the states not the federal government.

    Uh its about states..
    "empowers states to collect taxes on purchases made online by consumers in their states from out-of-state retailers. Under current law, states can only collect from companies that are physically located within their borders."
    Commerce clause states: "To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes"

    Therefore constitutional and they do have the authority.

    Nothing in this deals with defense or general welfare. Furthermore, its for the states not the federal government.
    "The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence"
    Its a tax to me seems constitutional...

    No, this is about business and the transactions of business that the states want to tax. This does not deal with trade between the states.

    ...to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

    Notice what the taxes are to be used for. This has nothing to do with any of those things listed.
