A little disappointed in Lamar Alexander and othersPosted Thursday, November 10, 2011, at 9:04 AM
A "bill was introduced Wednesday in the U.S. Senate by Republicans Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Michael Enzi of Wyoming and Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin."
The bill would create a national sales tax for online sales.
Why would you put more burden on many of us who are trying to make ends meet by selling on the internet? I realize there are many big businesses selling this way as well, but.....
Some folks say it will level the playing field with Brick and Mortar stores but internet folks pay shipping which is MUCH more than a sales tax (I hope).
Convenience and selection are things that make the internet successful but additional costs in sales tax will not help. I am surprised that Mr. Alexander would promote taking money from the people and giving it to the government which re-distributes in its' traditionally inept and corrupt way.
Maybe he has been up there too long. They say it can mess with your head.
