I’m not sure what’s more disappointing: Having a governor who makes the wrong decisions, or having a governor who’s too afraid to make decisions. After reading Mr. Fischer’s article (“Arizona retailers urge governor to negotiate with Amazon over tax issue”), it’s obvious we have the latter.

How can our governor say that it’s “not important” for her to get involved in the Amazon sales-tax issue? Has she not seen the empty storefronts in her West Valley strip malls?

It’s incredulous that she wants to sit on her hands while the small businesses that are so vital to Arizona struggle to compete with Amazon and other online retailers who don’t get charged sales tax. Forget SB 1070, because in my mind, her inaction on this issue will be her legacy.
