Copied verbatim for public good reasons:
Here is a more detailed version of the article.
Interesting approach. The states could start forcing commerce back to the taxable brick-and-mortar if they can only get the credit card companies to stop accepting internet transactions.
Can't happen you say? Did the credit card companies get a bone thrown their way the other day with the bankruptcy reforms? Think that kind of Congressional action doesn't come with a potential price? The government took on big tobacco and will take on the credit card companies too, if it has to. Perhaps all of these industries will eventually be made to cooperate with the taxman.
There is a word for that: fascism. I'm not talking about looney tunes fascism, but an economic system in which the factors of production are privately owned but the state dictates how those factors will be used.
