Philadelphia’s Mayor Michael Nutter defended the city’s policy to force bloggers to pay $300 per year for a business license. (He’s interviewed at about the halfway point in the video.)
“If you’re paying taxes to the federal government, you should be paying taxes to the City of Philadelphia.”
What a ridiculous argument. If someone’s blog takes in $100 a year, they aren’t going to pay the federal government $300 a year on that income.
