Assemblywoman Christy Smith just voted no on Assembly Bill 162. This bill, if passed, would have:
1. Prevented a tax on each and every text message, and,
2. Would have stopped the subject from being brought up again.
As our representative she should have voted against a tax on text messages. We are taxed enough in California already.
And, I do not want the government monitoring each and every one of my text messages. This is an invasion of our privacy. Stop this tax-and-spend phenomena that seems a part of every Democrat.
