the idea of federal legislation to equalize sales taxes, since such legislation would clearly infringe on State's rights.
The feds are already involved with interstate commerce authorized under Article I of the U.S. Constitution.
The feds can also regulate commerce within a state when it may impact interstate movement of goods and services and may strike down state actions which are barriers to such movement.
So technically applying a flat interstate tax to keep goods and services moving via ecommerce isn't a far stretch IMO.
