See Whether Your Senators Voted for the Internet Sales Tax Here!

Last night, the Senate voted to pass the so-called Marketplace Fairness Act (S. 743) and send it to the House.  This bill allows states to band together to form a sales tax cartel under which a business which sells products online must collect taxes for states where their goods are being shipped.  There are a multitude of problems with this bill – it is potentially unconstitutional, it raises taxes, it will harm startup businesses online, and it fundamentally changes the way that taxes can be collected.

Marketplace Fairness Act and the Grey Market

The Marketplace Fairness Act would subject retailers to sales tax audits from 50 different states and tax laws of nearly 10,000 local tax authorities. Proponents of this bill claim that this levels the playing field between internet merchants, such as Ebay or Amazon with brick and mortar retailers like Walmart or Best Buy. Critics point out that it only boosts the tax bill for America’s consumers and allows state governments to tax businesses not within their jurisdiction.

The New Luddites

Today, Ned Ludd and his followers are best known from the term Luddite: a much needed contribution to the English language that expresses fear or hatred of technology. But while the word has since taken on the connotations of a back-to-nature, Druidic-like disdain for modernity, it should be remembered that the original motivations for the Luddite movement were purely economic. The textile artisans saw their livelihood threatened by advances in mechanization, and lashed out to protect their own interests.

Senate Vote-a-Rama - See How Your Senators Voted on Key Amendments Here!

Last Friday, the Senate voted on dozens of amendments to their budget resolution before eventually (narrowly) passing the budget itself. This frenzy of amendments, known as a "vote-a-rama", gave many Senators a chance to force their colleagues onto the record on many key issues that have not come up for a vote in the Senate in years.Among the most important (and revealing) votes were on Medicare reform, internet sales taxes, ObamaCare repeal, carbon taxes, and Senator Rand Paul's budget plan.
