Sens. Mike Enzi (R-Wy.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) are expected to offer an amendment to a Democratic budget resolution this week that, by allowing states to ‘collect taxes on remote sales,’ is intended to usher in the first national Internet sales tax.” There goes one of the best ways to vote with your dollars.
