The Push for a Mandatory Internet Sales Tax – SJM 8009 The Real Issue During Washington’s Special Session

With the extremely frustrating and deeply disappointing special session now finished here in Washington there was a push to support a tax increase. Deceptively named the "Mainstreet Fairness Act" it is really about raising taxes. SJM 8009 was passed supporting a liberal Democrat bill in the U.S. Congress (can you say John Conyers)…which would allow a mandatory tax on the internet (destination based sales tax). This affects many states throughout the country and is a huge move against the last bastion of the truly free market. This is also a 10th Amendment issue…here is a link to the Joint Memorial… apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=8009&am…=2011
