Republicans May Allow States to Tax Consumers for Internet Purchases

The House is expected to vote on an omnibus spending bill next week. There are several riders that could be attached to the bill that will frustrate those of us who believe in limited government. The ObamaCare bailout is one piece that could be added, thanks to Senate HELP Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-Wash.), and House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.). But another rider that could be added is the Internet sales tax, which conservatives have successfully killed in the past.
