Proposed Internet sales-tax legislation received a huge boost on Monday when the White House officially backed the bill, saying it would level the playing field among online and retail stores by ensuring that both pay sales taxes.
Note that "leveling the playing field" always seems to be achieved by adding weights to the fast runner.

Note the lack of nuance exhibited by ignoring places with no sales tax.

Yep, why not simply lower property taxes on brick and mortars? Why not lower sales taxes on in-state purchases?
Brick and mortars are making a deal with the devil. As long as there are “tax free” Internet sales, there will be a cap on local taxes. As soon as that ends the lid can come off.
This is terrible policy. I mean, if Obama wants it, it cannot be good.
