The Hill – Advocates plan massive push for online sales tax
Steve DelBianco of NetChoice, who’s also trying to block the bill, said critics do have concerns that GOP leaders, seeking to “clear the decks” for 2015, would just waive the bill forward in response to the pressure of retail groups and Amazon. But he said opponents of the bill, including eBay, would be in a much stronger position if they could make it to January without the Marketplace Fairness Act as law.
“If being outspent would’ve been the method of defeat, we would’ve lost a long time ago,” DelBianco said. “But this is the closest they’ve ever come to pushing this law on American businesses.”
