Without the 17th Amendment the Internet would be taxed. Be careful what you wish for.
I live in California. Taxation of the Internet is already happening. Democrats here pushed Amazon and others into collecting sales tax. I’m against any taxation of the Internet. But my voice is not heard by the idiot Senators like Feinstein and Boxer who are picked by the libs in SF, and they welcome taxation of the Internet. They champion far-left liberal causes rather than things that benefit all Californians. If senators were chosen by the state legislature then at least we would have senators representing state interests. California is going to hell partly because of the 17th Amendment.
