Finally, this will be REALLY hard, if not impossible to solve at the federal level. The 10th Amendment would either have to be more abused than it already is...never a fun fight on the hill AND the lobbyists against the reform would be screaming "NEW TAXES!" from the rooftops...and most voters would agree.

The Constitution clearly gives Congress the power to regulate interstate commerce, so the 10th amendment is not a factor in this.

Of course the politics of it will be ugly. We are running the lowest tax rates of any industrial country and the nitwits are running around 'no new taxes' despite massive deficits. Ah well sooner or later that will have to change.
