In "Just take it all" (Forum, May 9), David Barnes sees the proposal to have online retailers charge the same sales tax that local merchants do as just another government attempt to add yet another tax. He fears socialism is taking over.
What's he moaning about? Americans are getting value for what they're paying for, and it's for something they want.
The two biggest federal programs are Social Security and Medicare, and so far they're covered by their own payroll taxes, not income tax. Does Barnes want them eliminated? The American people don't.
