I Guess You Have To Pay for Billionaire Ratner's Subsidies Somehow...

Albany considering forcing the collection of sales tax from Amazon and other online retailers. link.

State officials estimate the move will bring in around $50 million in new revenues by making cash-strapped New York the first state to collect sales taxes directly from online retailers that don’t have some type of brick-and-mortar presence here.

Is it constitutional? Hell, who cares, its bringing in revenue...by further taxing the middle class....funny how 'cash strapped' New York is still finding billions for Bruce Ratner.

New taxes for us...billions of tax dollars and tax breaks for Ratner...something wrong here? You bet.
