DES MOINES – Iowa Governor Terry Branstad sent a letter this week to the Iowa members of the U.S. House of Representatives asking them to vote in favor of the Internet sales tax.

The measure already passed the U.S. Senate.

The “Marketplace Fairness Act” (S.743), would create an Internet sales tax, subjecting small business to over 9600 different tax jurisdictions.

The Iowa Department of Revenue estimates that such a tax would create an additional $18 million in revenue for the state.

A Branstad spokesman has said that the governor “wants equity for our brick and mortar small businesses in Iowa, and wants to do everything we can to spur economic growth.”

Most all of the internet taxes collected will go to new public servant workers they will have to hire – just expanding government – smokey mirrors.

@Jesus-are you smoking that whackey stuff? It isn’t the Republicans that spend it is the Democrats. Our state was almost broke when we got rid of Culver and now has a surplus under Branstad. That is why the are reducing property taxes. You do pay taxes don’t you?

So much for all that GOP BS about being against more taxes. They are liars. They break the bank and then want to tax you more. I’m not fooled.
