More pandering by a Senator. If there is to be legislation regarding internet taxation it should apply equally to all businesses. Local businesses are at a disadvantage to internet business, many of which do not own a single product. They just process orders from a producer or wholesaler. Meanwhile our local businesses and economy is badly hurt and jobs are lost. Say NO to this rubbish. NO to S.31.

This bill and S. 1431 wisely choose to end the limit on the Internet Tax Freedom Act, there is no reason to keep appending the bill year after year with limits. If you want to grow the economy this is a great bill to do it with. I request you to bring S. 31 or S. 1431 up for a vote and out of committee promptly before the end of the session. Since the term expired on the current ITFA bill, the time to do this is NOW.

I support Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act because access to the internet is a basic right, and should not be subject to government taxation.

I support Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act, but vote no on any attachments that add taxes or infringe on freedoms in other ways, specifically vote NO on all votes to attach the so-called “Marketplace Fairness Act”.

I support Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act because... The Internet is one of the most significant technological advancements in mankind's history and has improved the condition of humanity by a quantum leap. Benefits include (a) ready access by individuals at any location to large quantities of knowledge and information on any subject; (b) worldwide communication among individuals with instant speed and accuracy; and (c) countless other improvements in mankind's existence. The Constitution prohibits government infringement upon Americans' individual rights, freedoms and independence. Congress and the White House must cease plotting to interfere with Americans' access to the awesome power to the Internet.

I oppose S. 31 ("A bill to make the moratorium on Internet access taxes and multiple and discriminatory taxes") because... Access fees (read: taxes) need to be obtained to put into a pool to be used for upgrading and strengthening out data infrastructure. Just like we take taxes for road construction, we also need these to ensure the information superhighway continues to drive traffic into the US.
