House Republicans warming up to Internet sales tax
House Republicans have to tread carefully here. The R Street Institute and National Taxpayers Union released a poll on Friday showing that 57% of likely voters oppose the Internet sales tax. Opposition soared to 70% when the merits of the proposal were explained. Similarly, a Gallup back in June found that 57% of American adults oppose taxing online sales. Both polls found strong opposition from young voters, moderates, and independents.
