Looking for anyway to continue squeezing a penny from the American citizens and businesses in order to continue their out of control spending, the U.S. Senate is again considering an online sales tax in their budget talks....
From The Daily Caller --
Lawmakers are again trying to attach an online sales tax to larger legislation they consider more likely to pass.
The Marketplace Fairness Act, which would allow states to levy sales taxes on goods purchased online, is being proposed as an amendment to the Senate budget for fiscal year 2014 by bill cosponsors Wyoming Republican Sen. Mike Enzi and Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin.
In the last session of Congress, the bill was proposed as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, but the move failed.
Though many lawmakers initially signed on to this year’s version of the Marketplace Fairness Act, including many Republicans, momentum for the bill has slowed.
There has been talk that the bill may be added to a larger comprehensive tax reform bill, though some feel that the measure should remain a separate bill.
The Senate budget proposal — the first unveiled in the upper chamber since 2009 — is expected to be debated through the week.
