After Week of Terror and Chaos, Obama’s First Order of Business is a Tax Hike

That and a full-court press on naturalizing 11 million illegal aliens. The man has his priorities.

Legislation that would empower states to tax online purchases cleared a key hurdle in the Senate on Monday after winning an enthusiastic endorsement from President Obama.

Senators advanced the bill in 74-20 procedural vote on Monday evening, just one vote short of the backing it received in a test vote last month. Twenty-six Republicans joined Democrats in moving forward with the bill.

The Senate will now begin debate on amendments. The chamber is expected to hold the decisive vote on the bill — known as the Marketplace Fairness Act — later this week.

Fairness, huh? Not so fair to those on a tight budget who find online bargains. Oh well, another promise broken. Is anyone surprised?

    I’ll make a few more online purchases until the tax hits. Too bad the smartest guys in the room of the best government money can buy will never learn that the more you tax something the less of that activity you get. Looks like that new Amazon distribution center they just built locally won’t be around very long.
