9:23 am
it? >> 10 pse&g 20 million visitor as month and probably do just about a billion dollars this year. >> when you come to washington, one of the things, from what i understand is your concerned about how the internet is used. particularly in the terms of taxation what's the issue? >> the issue is there are states who want to start taxing, we're based in you at the so when we, somebody buys something from wisconsin we don't put a sales tax on it. california, new york is starting to say we want that sales tax revenue and that's now the issue. >> so when states like that want that revenue, what ultimately could that do for your business? >> well, it could hurt us and it would hurt the people in those states that start paying tax on products they're not paying on now. >> when you - do you come to washington to lobby and talk to
9:24 am
folks about it. >> i'm not real popular for other reasons on capital hill. i have folks that come and lobby but actually, we haven't jumped into that issue too much but we've made our position clear. we're lobbying on other wall street issues but on that, we've made it clear. you want me to hit that? in 1992. supreme court. quill verses north dakota decided it was own rouse to ask catalog companies to pay tax on those out of state sales. just the 7,000 tax jurisdictions in america. in kentucky, cotton candy is taxes as candy in ohio it's taxed as food. there's no way for us to know the tax rates on every product in 7,000 places for that reason it's impossible for them to tax. however they're talking about

9:26 am
losing revenue from it? >> they certainly make the argument they're losing revenue from it. the argument it's not bought from a brick and mortar in their state which i would say well that's our point and not your point. brick and mortar or target store has employees that drive on roads. children use our schools and it imposed cost on the infrastructure where as we're just maleing a problem and it doesn't effect it nearly as much therefore we shouldn't be taxed. the true lobbying going on from behind this is from target and wal-mart. those are the stores the national retail is lobbying like crazy because they don't like the disadvantage they suffer. >> but they have web-sites as well. >> right but the majority vast sales from them are still in brick and mortar. >> for those on capital hill
9:27 am
whether you talk to them personally or people associated with your company, do you have a sympathetic ear and who have you talked to? >> i have not been. i have not been involved the lobbying. like i said, i've been antagonistic to folks on call toll hill and this is as close as i get to capitol hill but there are in general, i know there are, it's not a popular idea on capitol hill. enezi is trying enable it and there's a few other internet companies realizing it's a bad thing for governments to tax internet transactions. >> we'll have a guest on this for the next 25 minutes or so and if you want to ask him questions about these issues you can do so by calling one of the numbers correlating below.
