business news in context, analysis with attitude

The US Senate reportedly reached an agreement to delay any vote on empowering states to force online retailers to collect sales taxes. The reason?

Well, for one thing, they are going on vacation.

A vote on the bill is now scheduled for May 6.

Fox News reports that "a handful of senators from states without sales taxes were blocking the bill, which has widespread bipartisan support in the Senate."
KC's View:
I have tremendous respect for anyone who runs for public office, regardless of whether I agree with them. But I am really getting tired of hearing about how the Senate and the House of Representatives are in recess.

Recess? Really?

It ought to be like elementary school. You only get to go to recess if you get your work done and play well with others.
