Will the Internet Tax Mandate ruin (ugly) Christmas Sweaters?

Bloomberg Businessweek has an interesting story on "The Big Business of Ugly Christmas Sweaters."  The article points out how many small businesses and online entrepreneurs,, are profiting from selling "ugly" Christmas sweaters:

The novelty item has been especially good for small businesses and individual entrepreneurs. Anne Marie Blackman, a former stay-at-home mom with a background in computer science, picked up on the rage for ugly holiday sweaters in 2008 with the help of Google Trends. “I was looking for something to sell on EBay to help pay for my kids’ college,” she says. With the metrics pointing to ugly sweater parties, Blackman visited local thrift stores and picked up men’s and women’s designs. She then went to work, festooning them with more thrift store finds “like hook rugs and macramé Christmas trees,” she says. “I pictured what I’d want to wear to win the Most Ugly prize.”

These entrepreneurs are among the many whose businesses could be crippled if Congress gives America the National Internet Tax Mandate for Christmas. While beauty may be in the eye of the beholder when it comes to Christmas sweaters, there is nothing beautiful about the National Internet Tax Mandate.

Campaign for Liberty will continue to make sure the Grinch does not tax Christmas via the National Internet Tax Mandate.
