    As I noted in other comments, allowing states to collect sales tax on out-of-state purchases gives them an incentive to shift their revenue models in a regressive direction (i.e. raising sales taxes rather than income taxes). Actually, it gives them a double incentive -- not only to they get more money, but they get it from people who can't vote them out of office.

    On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.
