The antitax position isn't surprising coming from a solid Republican
like Saxton, but there's more to it than that. His chief economist, Dan Miller,
is a veteran gamer, with hours of World of Warcraft under his belt and the level
41 night-elf priest character to prove it. "We're not approaching this as a
partisan issue," says Miller. "But if there's a new issue, you want to set the
terms of the debate...to make sure that we're talking about this in a sensible
manner, not waiting until it's too late. I don't think it's a good idea to wait
until the IRS has already started writing rules."
When your economist is a Night Elf Priest then you know Saxton knows what he is talking about when it comes to taxing virtual Gold.
