Internet Sales Tax Bill Would Erode States’ Rights

Right now, all eyes are on the Senate as they weigh in on our Second Amendment rights.  The good news is that the gun-grabbing Schumer-Toomey-Manchin bill went down by a vote of 54-46.  Of course, no victory – or defeat – in Washington is permanent, and there are always new battles to fight for freedom.

But liberals in the Senate don’t just want to undermine our Second Amendment rights.

Liberals are after rights of all kinds.  Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) is now setting up a possible vote on internet sales tax legislation that would erode states’ rights.

The bill in question is the deceptively named Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013.  It’s anything but “fair.”  In fact, it would actually make interstate competition more difficult, which as Heritage explains was one of the very things the U.S. Constitution was designed to protect.

Moreover, the so-called Marketplace Fairness Act does not take into account the rights of states that do not have a sales tax, which is in part why it has drawn bipartisan opposition from Senators Max Baucus (D-MT) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH).

Like the gun debate, this one illustrates why conservatives must always hold Washington politicians accountable.

  4. The only upside to Internet tax or any other kind of sales tax is that more people actually pay it. The hidden economy also buys big-screen TV’s and iPads.

  5. An internet sales tax which would actually penalize both seller’s and buyer’s who use the internet as a means of doing business is a really bad economic move anyway you look at it. Of course Obama and the liberal’s want an American economy meltdown so here is another piece in their puzzle design. Watch what happens in Washington warily as the Attack’s on our Right’s and freedom’s seems to be a daily means of doing business the “Washington DC way”
