Illinois has instituted a sales tax on Amazon purchases, so Amazon is severing its relationship with Illinois affiliates. As a result, those Illinois affiliates lose their business, and the state ends up with less tax revenue than before.

This idiocy is doubly inexcusable because the same thing has happened in several other states already. It always plays out the same way.
