Online sales-tax bill called out of line

Full story: The Times Leader
Five states now have no statewide sales tax: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon. Full Story

Bryn Mawr, PA

The internet sales tax in Pennsylvania should be considered a privilege tax or an entitlement tax to the state bureaucrats of Pennsylvania. It's extortion or a vig simply for having residence in Pennsylvania.
On one hand I get the transaction itself is being conducted from Pa on the other hand the actual business is originating in another state. Pennsylvania also has a state income tax which includes a use tax. Pa simply feels entitled to all of it's residence disposable income.

Pa will treat you like a criminal for physically traveling out of state to shop tax free and for a much better consumer selection. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board sends their stasi agents out of state to gather money they feel entitled too much like a gangster demanding protection money. 3 Pa residents cited for traveling to the State of Delaware to buy alcohol.

It is this unwiley sense of entitlement to a residents disposable income that is more scary and oppressive than many of the federal income taxes which are bad enough.
