Sen. Cruz Calls Online Sales Tax Bill 'Lunacy'

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said that it would be “the height of lunacy” for Congress to greenlight an online sales tax measure before the end of the year. Cruz, joined by other opponents of the Marketplace Fairness Act, derided the online sales tax proposal as essentially a giveaway to large retailers and their K Street lobbyists, and is “singularly directed against the little guys.”
