    They wanted an EXEMPTION from an existing tax. This is not the government raising taxes, this is just a company pouting because their shakedown of the people did not work... This is about corporate welfare, not excessive taxes. Let's get the story straight.

    Not at all. The reason the business doesn't want to be forced to collect sales tax is because of part of the reason why online retailers manage to get a lot of bulk buying business is because they consumers don't have to pay a sales tax and if you order $25+ (number varies) shipping is free making it cheaper to buy goods online than going to your local provider.

    The reason TEA some party members support the legislation is for fair competition sake. If you are going to have a sales tax, you must apply it equally, or else you are showing special treatment and meddling in economic affairs.

    So you don't support fair competition?
