Today’s Taxpayer News!

The Daily Caller published this piece on tobacco and other “sin” taxes, employing NTUF’s recent study, which found such taxes to be largely incapable of producing expected revenue…

… And the DC writes NTU has signed onto a letter opposing the Internet Fairness Radio Act, which would forcibly lower the royalty rates Internet radio companies like Pandora pay for the ability to play each song.
