SPENDING MONEY WE DON'T HAVE - do they need a raise ? CLICK HERE
Feb. 2, 2017
The Mississippi House of Representatives is in a quandary (HB 480) BECAUSE they have caught the attention of Conservatives throughout the State by attempting to make internet taxation legal. This is in spite of opposing views by the U.S. Supreme Court requiring a "physical presence" within the State to be taxation on purchases. (See Quill v. North Dakota, and Colorado case, Direct Marketing Asso. v. Colorado Dept. of Revenue)
Amazon is ALREADY taxing us for purchases as of January 29 over the internet. I know because I was charged 7% on an item from Amazon. If this is a plan to produce revenue in MS, why can’t we get info from the MS Dept. of Revenue regarding the agreement with Amazon (and without a FOIA request)?
Repeated and elegant explanations of the sacred nature of the free market and fiscal responsibility have been offered abundantly. However quite simply - the fact remains that every dollar the government spends, it takes from you the taxpayer, the consumer. Individually we are more careful than the State or Federal government about how best to spend our hard earned money.
The people have spoken and are still saying to our State lawmakers that we do not agree to giving any corporate or public entity the permission to find any new area in which they can remove money from our wallets!
And where is the Mississippi Republican Party on this issue? Are they fighting for us, the taxpayer? Here is an excerpt from their “platform” (p. 32):
"We will consistently support internet policies that allow people and private enterprise to thrive, without providing new and expanded government powers to tax and regulate so that the internet does not become the vehicle for a dramatic expansion of government power."
Please call your State Representative (find contact info here) and the Speaker's office at (601) 359-3300 to voice your displeasure with any attempt to raise taxes on internet purchases (HB 480).

WHAT IS THE MISSISSIPPI TEA PARTY?
The Mississippi Tea Party is part of the grassroots political movement support by patriots across America. It was formed in 2009 to include local chapters organized together within our state to encourage a citizen voice in governing. The Mississippi Tea Party is the nonprofit statewide organization.
The Mississippi Tea Party is not a political party, instead, members support candidates whose beliefs and actions support the core beliefs of the Tea Party Movement:
The State wide organization:
The goals of the Mississippi Tea Party are:
The Tea Party and social issues:
Social issues in America can be strongly polarizing. While Tea Party members may have strong beliefs on certain matters it is important not to let those issues distract from The Tea Party's core beliefs of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets. The Tea Party does not take a position on social issues. Members are encouraged to involve themselves with other organizations to more appropriately get involved in these issues.
