Americans love Their Indentured Servitude

If you were to take the benefits pointed out by the White House about the “Marketplace Fairness Act” at face value, you would think you had a bill that was actually going to help small business owners.

The bill cruised through a Senate procedural vote yesterday 74-20 earning 26 votes from Republicans, and amendments are being worked on with the decisive vote to be held later this week. The Republican-controlled House will have the final say on the bill’s passage.

For all the White House’s talk of “leveling the playing field” however, the bill should be viewed as a major red flag that threatens small businesses making more than $1 million, and as an affront to state’s rights. It may also have unintended consequences that could potentially tax workers’ 401(k) contributions.
