From Neil McCabe's column in Townhall:

Christie said taxation of online sales an important issue to all the nation's governors and endorsed federal legislation giving all states taxing authority.

Even conservative opponents of the legislation agree small business owners have a point.

Jessica Melugin of the Competitive Enterprise Institute released a study on the legislation, where she concedes: “There certainly are inequities in the way online sales are taxed.”

But, like many opponents of congressional action to resolve Quill, Melugin said the Womack bill is worse than the disease.
