Republican Senator Introduces Bill Which Would Tax Internet Purchases

"U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., introduced legislation [on May 22] that would level the playing field for all in-store, catalog and online retailers so each has the same sales tax responsibilities," states Senator Enzi's website.

While Enzi insists the bill "would not increase taxes," the Sales Tax Fairness and Simplification Act would open the door for states to charge sales tax on Internet sales.  In contrast to his statement, a recent C-Net article states that Enzi warned that other taxes may zoom upward if his "mandatory sales tax collection" bill isn't passed."

Note it is a REPUBLICAN senator bringing this new tax to us. So, again, please do not believe Republicans anymore when they suggest they are for lower taxes and smaller government. The answer to the contradiction is simple, when a party is in power, they like spending. Principles are thrown out the window for greed and lust for more power to centrally plan our society. Vote libertarian, it's the only ethical choice.
