""I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."

-Barack Obama

We have noting to worry about as Obama will obviously veto this bill!

Right?

Sales tax is just a pass through anyway, states are the only ones to benefit and consumers are the only ones who suffer. The brick and mortars still have higher costs with retail floor space rental (higher than warehouse on anyones scale) and employee/manager pay and benefits -arguably higher than warehouse workers.

GM Wins Approval to Build $1.3 Billion Cadillac Plant in China By Bloomberg News - May 7, 2013 4:03 AM ET ..Facebook Share Tweet LinkedIn Google +1 12 Comments Print QUEUEQ..General Motors Co. (GM), the largest foreign automaker in China, said it won regulatory approval to build a Cadillac factory to boost sales of luxury vehicles in the world’s biggest automobile market.

The National Development and Reform Commission has signed off on the plant, which will be located in Shanghai’s Jinqiao zone, with construction beginning in June, Dayna Hart, a GM spokeswoman, said in an e-mail today. Investments will total at least 8 billion yuan ($1.3 billion) and annual production capacity will be 150,000 units, she said.

The plant would allow GM to avoid paying China’s 25 percent import tariff as it seeks to bolster Cadillac sales in the country. The move is part of Chief Executive Officer Dan Akerson’s plans for the luxury brand to compete with Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW)’s BMW

It was just a matter of time for the greedy states to cry, scream, beg itc. for more money. Appears that we, the people get screwed every time. I guess somebody has to pay for the over bloated city & state pay rolls, as well as welfare and all the other "give-aways"

Wvcoffee, you pay the cost of shipping every item you purchase at a brick and mortar store to your home? Do you tell your local retailer to ship it express mail, or do you send it Fed Ex or UPS? LOL

Wvcoffee “They're simply leveling the playing field, Brick n Mortar businesses vs Online.”

When they pass a law that mandates brick and mortar businesses start tacking shipping costs onto my bill I’ll buy that ridiculous argument. This is simply another tax increase by tax-and-spend Big Government liberals.

Good ol’ Democrit Senate. One thing you can count on from them: they’ll always vote FOR raising taxes on the middle class. Do you think the “rich” do much bargain shopping online? Middle class Americans, when your tax bill on your purchases goes up, you can thank a Democrit.

Mikeyd you studied to much ee Cummings. Not enough math. They're simply leveling the playing field, Brick n Mortar businesses vs Online. Not collecting local taxes is built into profit margins for online companies
