Why Did Dems Vote To Support The Billionaires Who Own Walmart By Passing Internet Sales Tax?

Isn’t the Walton family almost the richest family in the world?
Doesn’t Walmart already get away with providing limited/crappy insurance to the families of it’s $8/hour employees?

  1. It's all about me not you says:

    Sounds like you have no idea what you are talking about.
    Its only fair that online businesses have to collect state sales taxes just like regular businesses do

  2. Kevin says:

    I have never bought anything on the internet where I didn’t have to pay sales tax. What are you talking about?

  3. Smells like New Screen Names says:

    Federal enforcement of this sales tax is only on companies earning over a million dollars in internet sales. All revenue is the state’s revenue, this isn’t a new tax.
    Marketplace Fairness Act
    “Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 – Authorizes each member state under the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement (the multistate agreement for the administration and collection of sales and use taxes adopted on November 12, 2002) to require all sellers not qualifying for a small-seller exception (applicable to sellers with annual gross receipts in total U.S. remote sales not exceeding $1 million) to collect and remit sales and use taxes with respect to remote sales under provisions of the Agreement, but only if such Agreement includes minimum simplification requirements relating to the administration of the tax, audits, and streamlined filing. Defines “remote sale” as a sale of goods or services into a state in which the seller would not legally be required to pay, collect, or remit state or local sales and use taxes unless provided by this Act.”

    Man, you are stretching logic like it is a bloody gummy worm. Extending sales taxes to the internet isn’t done as a measure against the internet but as a means to stop business from evading taxes by providing services online as a way to get an exemption from sales taxes.
    You know what does take the Walton’s down a peg? How about bringing the top tax rate back to where it was in the 1960’s? How about unions? How about raising the minimum wage? When has the last time a conservative was talking about that?

  5. Stupidity Is Common Sense says:

    What can I say Democrats are frauds.

    Somebody’s on about Wal Mart again. Let me guess, Living Wage stooge? Sick of “paying for the food stamps that Wal Mart employees should get”?
    The Walton family’s wealth is irrelevant.
    What Wal Mart “gets away with” is irrelevant. The vast majority of their employees are part timers that are either in their teens or their 60s. They’re not supporting families.
