This is nothing more than a tax Increase on middle class taxpayers.

A bipartisan hose job on middle-class consumers.

Resistance, re-read the article. It is a Republican who is sponsering this tax grab. One of YOUR people, remember?

Sounds like a fair proposal to me. Everyone should pay their fair share.

With the mentality that we need to protect the "brick and mortar" stores, we would still have stables because they would have taxed motor vehicles to protect those that depend on horses for a living. We should allow the economy to evolve without government "tweeking". If the states need more tax money, find ways to do it within their borders.

This will be an economy killer. Those sales taxes will take away money that would normally go to sales and our economy will contract.
