Senate Uses NDAA as an excuse for passing MFA

           Just when we thought we were past it, Senate comes back and throws us a curve ball. The Marketplace Fairness Act is back in full force. We R Here Executive Director and tax fairness advocate Phil Bond released the following statement in response to rumors that a member of the Senate may seek to attach the Marketplace Fairness Act (MFA) to the Fiscal Year 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA):

You can view this quick clip explaining on how to take action and fight against the Marketplace Fairness Act.

 The Senate is willing to risk passing the defense bill, which is needed to pay our troops. The defense bill is very important to ensure that our men and women in uniform have the resources they need to protect the United States. They shouldn't be in the same category as a tax bill. Senate has hit a new low, they are proving they will do anything to get the anti-small business bill passed.  

Consumers and small web-enabled retailers across the country deserve an open and straightforward process before Congress unloads a new tax burden on them, and we hope that Senator Durbin will choose not to pursue this undemocratic approach.

Help take action, email, write letters and call. We need to be heard!
