    I wouldnt necessarily be opposed to taxing internet sales and more specifically taxing overseas internet sales, provided it was offset by lowering income taxes by a proportional amount, it could even be a positive thing which made people want to spend money at home. If it just ends up being a new way to tax people and there is absolutely no accountability for it, then its pure and utter bullshit.
