An $8 billion deficit in California sure makes politicians hungry for new taxes, the latest being a proposal to tax downloads from online stores such as iTunes and Amazon.

The most interesting comments in this article come not from the one proposing the tax hike but by Annette Nellen, a fellow at the New America Foundation: “Our tax base hasn’t kept up with how we do business and how we live. The way we consume things have changed, but we still have a 1930s tax base.”
