This issue has NOTHING to do with RAISING taxes or NEW taxes, people. It's about forcing Amazon to collect sales tax just as EVERY OTHER law abiding retail business in the state does, from the mom and pop corner store (the few that are left) to Walmart.com, Target.com, Lowes.com etc.
Amazon.com doesn't collect sales tax simply because they think they're above the law and because they like having a 8 or 9% advantage over their competitors. And of course, they couldn't care less if California closes fire houses, parks, libraries, schools, or lays off policemen, teachers, firemen; or goes bankrupt.
