Congress may pass a law that would require the collection of sales tax when goods are purchased on the Internet.

Fox 2's Charlie Langton took "Let It Rip" on the road and asked people whether they feel this is a good idea.

"For the government it is.  They make money," said one person.

"We need revenue," another person remarked.

"[The Internet is] here to stay.  Get used to it and pay the tax," yet another person said.

Watch the video report for more reactions.  Charlie also asked people whether a mandatory Internet sales tax would lead them to stop shopping online.
