    The U.S. Senate is debating the so-called Marketplace Fairness Act. It’s a bill that would result in the taxation of Internet sales, driving up costs for consumers. The legislation cleared a procedural hurdle Monday and could have a floor vote by Thursday. This is a classic case of where the interests of big business and big government intersect. But not all businesses are signing on to this new scheme.

    GOODBYE, AMERICA! IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTEDFebruary 11, 2009It's bad enough when illiterate jurors issue damages awards in the billions of dollars because they don't grasp the difference between a million and a billion. Now it turns out the Democrats don't know the difference between a million and a trillion. Why not make the "stimulus bill" a kazillion dollars?

    Today, Senate Democrats led the charge to block a repeal of the Estate Tax, which would have handed the wealthiest Americans a windfall of nearly $1 trillion over the next 10 years. The Los Angeles Times called the Republicans' failure, "the latest in a string of GOP defeats on issues dear to the party." [Los Angeles Times, 6/8/06] "Democrats are committed to policies that benefit the American people, not the special interests,” said Democratic National Committee Press Secretary Stacie Paxton. “This bill is just one more example of Washington Republicans’ misplaced priorities and fiscal recklessness.
