I would support the move if it would cut down the annoying Facebook messenger popups on my phone, the story says they are exempt.

That is easy, get rid of Facebook.

 

Now the question is will this be just for sending a text message, or also receiving a text message?  If receiving also incurs a tax, you could drive up someone's tax bill if you wanted to and were not living in CA.

Battery draining, privacy draining, patience draining, but Mom insists on using it.

My wife is the one that I have to talk to using it. Gosh dang she does not answer a phone call or a text but she as hell won't miss a fb message from me.

I made my wife close her FB account.  Has been the best 2 months of the past year thus far!

I wish I could but it's a free way for her to talk to family and other pinays around here. 

 

Seriously my wife never checks her texts from anybody. It is so annoying for me.

Close FB, keep messenger.  That is also how mine talks to her family. 

 

Also, if not familiar, WhatsApp is a MUCH better platform.  Pics and videos are sent in original quality.  Video calls are superior to messenger, IMO.
