The Hill’s Bernie Becker wrote about Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist’s reaction to Speaker Boehner’s announcement that he would fight against online sales tax proposals.
“Obama says yes to taxing the Internet, Reid says yes to taxing the Internet,” Norquist, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform, said in a statement. “Speaker Boehner just said ‘hell no’ to taxing the Internet. Boehner wins. The American consumer wins.”
Connor Wolf of the Daily Caller wrote an article regarding a United Auto Workers union establishing itself at a Volkswagen plant whose employees have voted against unionization.
However, some see this as circumventing the workers’ wishes. Matt Patterson, executive director at the Center for Worker Freedom, said in a statement, “The commitment of the company to allow this outside organization, which has decimated auto jobs in Detroit and left entire companies and cities bankrupt, is a betrayal of the VW workers who gave a loud and clear ‘No!’ to the UAW, by a vote of 712 to 626.”
