Twenty-two Republicans sold us out yesterday and voted to tax sales on the Internet. They mostly had signed no tax pledges which they broke when they cast their votes.
They say that there is no difference between an Internet tax and a sales tax in the store. But they are wrong. With 11,000 separate tax jurisdictions and rates in the US, taxing sales online is a huge burden on net firms. And, government regulation, oversight, retaliation, and discipline will invade the Internet under the guise of collecting back taxes.
