Unfair sales tax should not cover online sales

You suggest that online sales should be taxed. The current system is unfair to Washington businesses. Oh. That’s too bad. Washington state has the most regressive tax system in the nation!

Who could not be embarrassed and disgusted by this? Why render slightly more palatable a terrible system? If sales taxes hurt state businesses we should get rid of sales tax and use a graduated income tax. I want businesses behind this idea, not made more comfortable with the status quo.

Perhaps they will help politicians and the electorate muster the courage to do what is obviously the right thing.
