  •  It's not exactly regressive (4+ / 0-)

    Amazon and other online realtors are supposed to collect this tax, and deliver it to the state where the tax is to be collected.

    The fact that the tax isn't collected makes the current landscape regressive.  Who is more likely to pay the tax as things are right now?

    A 30-year lawyer who can take five minutes out of her day to go to bridesareus.com and order her wedding dress,

    or

    A 23-year waitress who only has time on her way home from work to go to the local bodega to purchase diapers.
