Involves the power to destroy. Congress is hearing testimony today on an Internet Sales Tax as the U.S. House Judiciary Committee will convene a panel on the subject. The committee’s chairman, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) is okay with the idea if it meets certain principles. The proposed bill is called the Marketplace Fairness Act. Watch out for anything in the government that contains any form of the word “fair.”  It means that someone is going to get screwed. The worst part of the Constitution that conservatives claim to revere so much is “the power to lay and collect taxes” in Article I.
