Massachusetts State Treasurer Steven Grossman has sent an invitation to the Speaker of the U.S. House Representatives, John Boehner, challenging the Republican to a debate over a bill that would require intern retailers to collect state sales taxes. Boehner has expressed reluctance about the bill, which Grossman, a Democrat, says would not only generate revenue, but level the playing field for brick-and-mortar retailers.
