Tell Senators: Keep Internet Access, Usage, and E-mail Tax-Free!

The Internet Tax Freedom Act is one of the few bipartisan efforts that legitimately benefits average Americans as it keeps our internet tax-free.

Whether you are aware of it or not, Internet access is currently free of usage taxes because of a 1998 bill signed by President Bill Clinton and renewed twice by President George W. Bush - the Internet Tax Freedom Act. 

This important legislation prevents government – federal, state, and local – from laying discriminatory taxes on Internet service, preventing taxes on things like Internet access, Internet usage (bit tax), and even email.

On June 9, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 235 to make the Internet Tax Freedom Act permanent... and now it's time for the United States Senate to do the same. 

Take Action! Add your name below and send a letter to each of your U.S. Senators demanding they pass S. 431, the Internet Tax Freedom Forever Act, prior to October 2015!

Squeezing the freedom from this Nation in every way has become a daily action of officals wanting to keep power for themselves and totally forgetting why you are there in the first place. You ALL have totally failed to protect this Nation and the millions of Americans who placed trust in you. You have all betrayed this Nation. Adding taxes to the internet is the last bastion of free speech left to us , you have no right to do what you are doing to put yourselves above the well being of our Nation. Even in this internet haven you have allowed fear of free speech to enter. That of itself is unforgivable. Yes , we want security but you are using that as a tool against our people. That is clear all the while allowing terrorists assess to classifed informations no American citizen could even see let alone effectively change. Why have you allowed this Nation to be totally left open to all manner of terrorism? Security is a joke in this Nation. The minute you add a tax to the internet you will have cut off a massive number of Americans from any voice at all and information on terrorist attacks here as well. What are you thinking??? You want to do something...tax every out of country web site that is on ourr net but leave our people alone. We the citizens of this country are the only ones being squeezed out of our rights. STOP IT..NOW

If this goes through it will only cause many, maybe most to just give up internet service. And if not the service itself, no emails and no purchases. If everything we do is taxed, the economy will get worse. I for one am sick to death of paying for the White House, Senate, Congress, State and City officials to live high on the hog in their corruption. They don't have a clue how to handle money. I want every last one of them voted out. That is my prayer. Enough is Enough! I'm tired of paying for those who could work but don't because the governments allow no tracking or accountability for those who receive assistance, and never insist or help them get off of it. I'm tired of those who take disability payments because they are a drug addict while sucking social security dry. America wake up and look to someone else election time. Those in office right now have put us where we are today. If they cannot be trusted with our money then get them out of there! We are not here on earth to support their corruption. And for those in need, these programs are meant to help them get on their feet, not support them the rest of their life. This went off a bit on the subject, but I'm one American who is so very fed up with politicians, big government, and corruption!
