SPRINGFIELD, Virginia - Today, Campaign for Liberty President John Tate released the following statement after Senate Passage of the Internet Tax Mandate:
“When Campaign for Liberty began this fight, there were only two Senators who publicly opposed this job-destroying legislation, and some very powerful special interests lined up behind the bill. Even with Harry Reid’s efforts to fast-track this legislation, Campaign for Liberty generated over 750,000 fax petitions and thousands of phone calls from our members to Senators, which helped move the ‘no’ vote total to 27.
“The fight is not over. Campaign for Liberty will continue our aggressive grassroots campaign to fight the Internet Tax Mandate in the House. We will hold any and all Representatives accountable for supporting tax-hiking legislation.”
