McCain Runs Anti-Internet Tax Ads

Share this article:
Presidential hopeful John McCain recently ran anti-Internet tax ads on Slate Magazine's Web site to gain ground on Republican front-runner Gov. George W. Bush before the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries.


The "Just Say No To Internet Taxes" banners launched the morning of the Iowa caucuses on the politically oriented site. McCain's camp said the ads were target-specific since politically active Internet users were not only e-consumers wanting the Web to stay tax-free, but were also likely voters.


McCain has held a consistent opposition to Internet taxation, while Bush has called for a 3-to-5 year moratorium on the issue.
