The "Marketplace Fairness Act" proposes that the federal government has the power to tax the Internet. Making small online businesses collect use tax for states they don't operate in isn't fair– it's a money grab. Using automatic monthly withdrawals from their own bank accounts and having to correct mistakes, small online sellers would calculate, collect and remit use tax for buyers that live in other states. Unfairly, the lion's share of use tax evasions would remain ignored elsewhere! Instead of "leveling the playing field," as some have suggested, the MFA would simply "level" thousands of businesses and hurt the economic recovery.

Not only does this law trample on state sovereignty, but it also hurts online business and gives way to big government.
