Sorry, I can't buy into any sales tax to the feds. First, it would only stay at 1.5% until they put us even further in debt and scream bloody blue murder that they needed more.
Second, if the feds want a new tax, as another poster suggested, put a 1% on Wall Street, on the speculators, not the consumers who bear the brunt of all the rest of the taxes and "fees".edit on 19-7-2013 by nwtrucker because: grammar

I too have mixed feelings, I dont think that an internet sales tax would be such a bad thing IF they use the money from that to improve the internet infrastructure in the countries where its collected. Kinda how tolls are used to maintain the roads
