Yeah, I'm the taxman...

(if you drive a car, car;) - I’ll tax the street;
(if you try to sit, sit;) - I’ll tax your seat;
(if you get too cold, cold;) - I’ll tax the heat;
(if you take a walk, walk;) - I'll tax your feet.

Yeah, I’m the taxman.

And you're working for no one but me.

    [Republican Sen. Lamar] Alexander said Tennessee could use the extra money to improve education, reduce tuition at public colleges and universities, or lower the state’s sales tax rate - currently the highest in the nation, according to the Tax Foundation.

    It will also help ensure that Tennessee doesn’t implement a state income tax, he said.

    “If some purchasers and some sellers continue to avoid state taxes, why, it makes it more likely that Tennessee would have a state income tax.”

I predict that tuition at Tennessee public colleges and universities does NOT go down and that the state's sales tax rate is NOT lowered, and that there WILL BE, eventually, a Tennessee state income tax implemented. Anyone wanna take a $1.00 bet against that prediction?

Furthermore, the proposal has backing from Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy, so I am seriously considering boycotting these three giants.
