Unless you act NOW, the National Internet Tax Mandate could sail through the Senate this week!
You see, Campaign for Liberty members have been so successful in keeping the National Internet Tax Mandate from even being considered by the U.S. House that the powerful interests behind it are being forced to “get creative.”
Now, a “bipartisan” group of Senators — led by Big Government Republican Lamar Alexander and acting on behalf of pro-Mandate special interests — is working with Harry Reid to ram the Mandate into law by attaching it to legislation preventing governments from taxing you whenever you go online!
Senator Alexander has even gone as far as to threaten to block passage of the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act, a bill that would prevent state and local governments from taxing Internet access, if Senator Reid doesn’t attach the Mandate to it!
And I have heard from Capitol Hill sources that House Republican leadership — desperate to please the pro-Mandate big corporate interests but terrified of being Cantor’d for publicly supporting imposing more regulations on the Internet — has quietly signed off on this deal!
Please call your senators and tell them to vote NO on all votes to attach the so-called “Marketplace Fairness Act” to the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act – including all procedural votes.
Sen. Lamar Alexander: (202) 224-4944
Sen. Bob Corker: (202) 224-3344
The first procedural votes could take place as early as today, so it is vital you call your senators right away!
