A VAT in the form of taxing text messages. Beautiful.

Even more disturbing is that, according to an article I read, they want to make the tax retroactive, going back 5 years.

That sanctuary state must be getting expensive to support. But hey it's all good because that's what the people of CA voted for.

"A texting surcharge could help sustain the Public Purpose Program budget, which has risen to $998 million in 2017 from $670 million in 2011,"

1 BILLION dollars, for poor peoples mobile phones EVERY YEAR. Soon we may be talking about real money.... Wonder how many are illegals??

Go for a walk and the'll tax your feet.
