Contact Your Member of Congress. Tell Them the Conservative Position is No New Taxes on the Internet

Monday, the United States Senate passed the so-called "Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013" on a vote of 69 - 27 [SOURCE: Senate Vote #113].

This bill is opposed by nearly every conservative organization in the country.

The Heritage Foundation says, "Congress should not authorize states to expand collection of taxes on internet and mail order sales."

The TEA Party Patriots, who believe Americans are taxed enough already, say the Marketplace Fairness Act is a functional tax increase, since the states currently do not collect taxes owed under current law.

Freedomworks says, "Conservatives should reject any bill that expands the authority of out-of-state governments to regulate businesses with regard to online taxation".

Georgia's two United States Senators, Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson, have already rejected the conservative position with their "Yes" votes in favor of internet sales taxes.

However, the bill can still be killed in the House, if you contact your Member of Congress today.

The message is clear. Do not let the internet sales tax bill come to the House floor for a vote. And if it does appear on the House floor, vote NO.
