How?
Because he's basically obscuring scale by zooming out.

I just looked at data from the Annual Retail Trade Survey (https://www.census.gov/data/tables/2016/econ/arts/annual-report.html). You can easily look at e-commerce sales tax as a percentage of e-commerce sales over time, and compare that to all other sales tax as a percentage of all other sales. If it's lower (which it is), that indicates you're losing tax revenue on e-commerce. That gap has been closing (I'd guess because of more e-commerce hitting the nexus requirement in more states), but e-commerce as a percentage of all retail is still rising too.

I'd caveat that he has given himself an out by being very vague in saying that states are overestimating how much they're going to collect, which leaves his actual point somewhat of a moving target.

I just signed a petition to protect small online businesses and consumers from unfair Internet taxes. You should sign it too. http://bit.ly/2JUTsyb #NoNetTax

 Doesn't hurt to fill in.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
