Tax, tax, tax! You get what you vote for. Tax, tax, tax! This will surely increase the purchasing power of the middleclass.

Hopefully the House will vote against it. However, I'm sure a vote for it will come from Niles!

Yes, it is a tax increase and the cost to implement it for businesses would be tens of billions of dollars as there are over 3400 different sales tax rates in this country some tied to a single plus 4 zip code number.

Requiring additional taxes to be collected IS a tax increase.

Requiring all on-line companies to develop programs to determine various tax rates and collect and remit taxes to a multitude of destinations IS an increase in the cost of doing business- always passed on to the consumer in some way.

Just how long will it be before the Feds decide to utilize the Internet tax collecting system to also collect a "little" more tax for the Federal government in addition to the state taxes?

Smells a lot like a series of middle class tax hikes does it not?
