Senate Passes Internet Tax Bill- See How Your Senator Voted: House Puts The Brakes On

Wake Up America – by Susan Duclos

The Senate passed an internet tax bill on Monday, with a vote of 69 to 27 with 4 note voting. The roll call of how each Senator voted will be listed below, by position.

The House of Representatives has put the brakes on that version of the bill and lawmakers claim if it passes it will be very different from the Senate’s version of the bill.

  1. I read this on another blog,,quite apropo to this whole debacle,,,

    Internet Tax – I don’t give a damn about fairness. And this is coming from a guy who owns a physical store… If your business has significant online competition, you should have changed your business model over a decade ago. And every year since. If you get soft and fat, your market share gets gobbled up by the competition, regardless of how fair things may or may not be.

    We have officially entered the Ayan Rand zone, where government passes laws for everything, that do no good for anyone,,,

  2. Speaking strictly for myself, this will do nothing except give me cause to support the local economy and screw the internet retailers. Where is the advantage if you now have to pay tax in ADDITION to paying to have it shipped to you. Where is it? I would as soon want the local businesses and my local tax base to reap the benefit from more pillaging created by a bunch of screwball political hacks masquerading as our representatives. That, just by itself, it the biggest joke being played on us all.

  3. Aren’t tax laws required to START in the House?
    So much for law. It is just power of the elite over the peasants.

  4. Sensible citizens would consider suspending all unnecessary consuming and force the privileged tyrants to bring back US manufacturing, curtail foreign military adventures; in short, stop buying the rope they are hanging you with.

  5. Bullwinkle: you are right, all tax laws are to start in the house, than go to the senate. SOOO; this bill is unconstitutional. BUT when has that stopped congress.
