Savings?

What goes out the door comes back in through the window.

If you starve states' sales tax revenues, you get:

  • cuts in road maintenance, police, parks, schools and public health,

  • underfunded pension and insurance plans,

  • transfer of jobs from local brick / mortar outlets to Seattle or abroad.

And then, Bingo:
higher property and income taxes.

Can't tax trees!

To level the playing field, there ought to be some sort of tax on internet commerce.
