-—————Wouldnt I want a sales tax to protect my business?——————
You would want to work to lower the taxes in your own state. That way your state has as low of tax burden as his state does.
And!!!!! And, you would want to sell your own stuff online as well. Now you have an even playing field.
The answer is *NOT* to punish the other guy. Because in the process of punishing the other guy, you punish us all.
That’s what progressives do.
I would agree that your answer is the only logical answer. Instead of Businesses wining, compete on the internet.
