Congress can do this right and create a situation that is a minimal burden to consumer and businesses.
Since when has Congress done right by "small" businesses, or the consumer for that matter. Without trying or wanting to get into a political debate, Congress will cater to whomever "donates" more money, something which has gotten way out of hand in the past several years.
Of course, do they realize what a bureaucratic nightmare it will be for States if suddenly they have tens of thousands of businesses added to their books and having to process all that paperwork every quarter.
And lastly, what do they do about companies located outside the U.S. Just one more aspect to consider.
