Colorado May Tax Online Purchases

In a cowardly move, the House and Senate are closer to taxing online purchases. 

For years the internet has been a safe-haven from tax-and-spend Democrats across America.  Now, if this Colorado bill passes, purchases at Amazon and other retailers who have no physical presence in Colorado will be taxed.

The cowardliness is the Democrats refusal to cut spending where it hurts.  The multitude of government-dependent programs that ought to be operated locally or privately will never be touched because too many voters like being dependent upon the government and millions more like the feeling of "helping" others with other people's money.

Pray that this will not happen.  It will surely put a damper on internet sales and hurt the poor who enjoy cheaper prices online.
