There’s a reason why so many people are fleeing California.
Well, LOTS of reasons, actually.
California is already too expensive for most people; the high cost of rent and expenses continues to rise at a ridiculous rate.
On top of that, the incompetent politicians who run the state punish the people who stick around with heavy taxation.
And when we say heavy taxation, we mean heavy taxation … just ask the residents.
Now, the latest attempt to tax residents is here: a tax on your text messages.
From The Right Scoop:
“California may soon charge its residents a fee for text messaging, according to a report released by state regulators Tuesday.
The report from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) says the tax on text messaging would likely be a flat fee added to a monthly bill..
…the money would be used to fund programs that make phone service available for low-income residents.“
Isn’t this just classic Democrat?
They want to tax us so the poor get free phones.
So, instead of finding a reasonable way to pay for it, they want to punish every hard-working resident who can actually afford a phone!
As if we don’t deserve the money we work for, right? Democrats want to steal it and give it to people who either can’t work or (more likely in CA) refuse to work.
California is already one of the highest-taxed states in America, and it’s obviously only going to get worse.
Residents suffer from shrinking job opportunity, numerous natural disasters, rampant homelessness, and terrible lawmakers.
Now, they have to worry about paying extra taxes, just to communicate with their families.
The only silver lining is that the FCC has knocked down this tax.
…but that doesn’t mean California regulators won’t find another way to punish their own people!
