Jason Chaffetz Supports an Internet Sales Tax


There is one striking difference between John Boehner and Jason Chaffetz.

Chaffetz supports the internet sales tax that Boehner actually worked to kill.

In fact, Chaffetz’s bill has the support of the crony capitalist community because his bill would punish mom and pop shops that start growing and might become potential threats.

Again, this is a big difference with John Boehner. Boehner actually opposed the internet sales tax and was on the right side of it.

Frankly, Kevin McCarthy has been opposed to both the Export-Import Bank and the internet sales tax. Add with this that Chaffetz was a leadership lap dog in punishing Mark Meadows for standing up to John Boehner and I’m really starting to wonder one thing — if Chaffetz is the great conservative hope, what the hell is a conservative these days?
