Mo-Sen: The primary is heating up – Sarah Palin has endorsed, and there’s a bit of drama

Former Vice Presidential Candidate and Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin has endorsed a candidate in Missouri’s GOP primary for U.S. Senate.

Ya don’t say?

Retired bomber pilot Tony Monetti has earned the nod from Palin, who will campaign for him in Kansas City on June 27. A public rally will be held along with a VIP fundraiser, which Monetti says is “a game changer” for his campaign.

Monetti told TheBlaze, “So many [of our supporters] want signs, and we can’t afford to make them fast enough.” He said, “I had one supporter say, ‘I don’t have a lot of money, but I’ll paint signs and put them in my neighbors’ yards.”

But Palin’s endorsement is expected to breathe extra life into Monetti’s campaign.

How did that happen?

Tony’s wife, Penny, has always loved Sarah Palin. So after Palin posted on her website that Tony’s announcement release was the “best campaign video of all time,” an introduction was in order.

Penny flew to meet with Palin and told her about Tony’s initiatives.

In the campaign video, Monetti says, “I don’t know about you, but I’m just sick and tired of what’s going on in D.C.,” all while he’s flying (mostly upside-down) in a single engine Extra 300.

“I’m willing to do it, but I need your help,” Monetti tells his audience in the video. He told TheBlaze, “We’re moving hearts and minds, but we need more money.”

I have to report this:

Monetti’s campaign manager, Jonica Hope, was arrested last week for allegations of falsifying a sworn statement. Hope evidently admitted to a charge of fraudulent use of a credit device a few years ago, and failed to report it when she was signing up to run for the Christian County Republican Committee.

Under advisement by her attorneys, Hope was not able to speak about the situation. But Monetti told TheBlaze in laughter, “We are the basket of deplorables, after all. We’re a ragtag team but we’re all heart and we’re going to win.”

U.S. Supreme Court Reconsiders Online Sales Tax Rule

The U.S. Supreme Court is reconsidering a longstanding decision preventing states from requiring out-of-state businesses to collect and remit sales taxes on purchases made by residents of their states.

Oral arguments in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. began on April 17.

In the 1992 case Quill v. North Dakota, the Court established the “nexus” standard for business taxation, declaring a business need not remit sales taxes unless it maintains a physical location, or nexus, in the taxing jurisdiction. Consumers are supposed to pay the tax directly to governments, but compliance is rare.

Lawyers representing 41 states, including South Dakota, are asking the court to overturn the Quill decision.

Matter of Jurisdiction

Tim Huelskamp, president and CEO of The Heartland Institute, which publishes Budget & Tax News, says state governments lack the constitutional authority to tax people outside their borders.

“The United States is essentially 50 free markets,” Huelskamp said. “The Quill decision made it clear that, [for example] New York has no authority to tax folks in Kansas if the business doesn’t have a presence there, which matches all kinds of constitutional standards. We’re going to let the state of California reach into every state in the Union? It’s certainly scary to proponents of limited government.”

More Taxes, More Problems

Andrew Moylan, president of the National Taxpayers Union, says reversing the Quill decision would hit small business owners with more taxes and complex paperwork.

“Large retailers already have to collect tax in every state because they have storefronts, warehouses, or employees in states across the country,” Moylan said. “The people who would be negatively impacted by this are those small- and medium-sized businesses, and particularly people who utilize so-called marketplaces—think of websites like eBay or Etsy or even Amazon Marketplace.”

Huelskamp says states should reduce spending and enforce existing laws instead of trying to tax outsiders.

“I think we have a spending problem in most of these states, not a revenue problem,” Huelskamp said. “There are a number of other options. Eighty percent of this revenue is already collectible under current law.”

Interstate Commerce Slowdown

Moylan says undoing Quill would cause many business owners to stop selling to out-of-state consumers.

“They’d see huge compliance costs and major complexity to the point where they would most likely just not sell across state lines,” Moylan said. “If businesses find it too complicated to engage in interstate commerce, they will simply stop.”
