1.Sales Tax all internet sales, this will do two things.... Stop warehousing outside of the US and help the local busines. 2. This is the big one. Fair trade with China Japan and all other cut throat business ventures that are a detrament to our economy.... (except apple) we like child labow. Watch Wal Mart shiver in that. GOOD DAY ! Tighten up ! We would have no problems with 11 million amnesty to mexicans if we do those 2 simple things.
More taxes are alway a great idea but unless you are charging 30% retail stores are still at a disadvantage. Cut throat business ventures, does that mean you want to do away with market competition? I love the idea of welcoming 11 million criminals (more like twenty million) into the US with open arms, what possible problems could that cause?
Deme, in Illinois I don't pay any tax on Amazon purchases or Newegg. I don't think used merchandise should be taxed though, just new items. A pot tax would be better than using tax money to fight it, but as Boos said it is part of the fix but more is needed.
Great post Boos. The internet tax holiday kills local brick & mortar business. Its crazy that they have the advantage of tax free sales as well as no retail space or retail sales people. The last two are advantage enough. Loosing local business and having Wal-Mart & Target replace the vacuum leads to complete destruction for the social fabric of any community. I don't want trade wars, but the end of dumping is a must as is an internet tax.
