Even though the outcome is not in doubt, senators and outside groups are making their final pitches for and against a Senate plan to allow states to collect sales taxes for Internet purchases.

Freshman GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, for instance, is among those arguing the bill is effectively a tax increase on consumers.

“How is it fair for a Texas business to collect taxes to support California Gov. Jerry Brown’s big spending? Or to underwrite New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s nanny statism or Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s anti-Second Amendment agenda?” Cruz said in a Sunday opinion piece at Real Clear Politics.

Conservative Texans could, of course, avoid any such risk of support for liberal policies by only shopping online at businesses based in red states.

Texas is one of 45 states with a sales tax. Our colleagues at the CQ Roll Call Data Mine have an interactive graphic with all the details.

The National Retail Federation, which has advocated for the new legislation, made its last cry for votes in a letter circulated Monday morning.
