Valve Games on Origin

In an interesting twist to the competition between Valve's Steam and Electronic Arts' Origin, the Origin store is now selling some Valve games, as seen in this buy two get on free promotion, where the games in the "buy two" part include Counter-Strike: Source, Left For Dead: Game Of The Year Edition, and Left For Dead 2. Thanks Joystiq.

Basically, if a company does not have offices in a particular state, they are not required to charge sales tax on sales made to that state. Valve has physical offices in Washington, so Washington residents are the only ones who have to pay sales tax for ordering through Steam. EA has offices all over the damn place, so in many states you'll be charged sales tax.
The US government is in massive debt - like most developed nations - and yet they haven't even considered fixing the tax system so that people... you know, actually pay tax? Surely with internet shopping the way that it is it would make sense to have a unified tax level for all states? I remember reading a few things about Amazon cutting out affiliates to avoid tax and I was amazed that the government had done nothing to address it.

Kinda hard to collect taxes when you have so many living off the government tit to begin with. You can thank liberals like good ol Obama for that. Why take responsibility and make a life for your self when liberal politicians would rather buy your vote with more free money and handouts?
