View Diary: Online sales tax loophole forces House GOP to choose between Norquist and local business owners (110 comments)

  •  Norquist-GOP Win-Win; Democratic Lose-Lose (0+ / 0-)

    If the bill fails, Norquist's theatrics help insure that people remember that the GOP protected middle-class shoppers from having to pay more in taxes. Win for him; win for the GOP; lose for the Democrats.

    If the bill passes (with mostly Democratic and peeled-off Republican votes), Norquist has a rallying cry and people are repeatedly reminded that the GOP tried to protect them from "new Democrat taxes". Win for him, bigger win for the GOP; bigger lose for the Democrats.

    On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.
