Gynecologic Care, abortion, birth control, pregnancy and now tampons

Gynecologic Care, abortion, birth control, pregnancy and now tampons
https://americanindependent.com/tennessee-gop-tampon-ban-feminine-hygiene-products-sales-tax-holiday-republicans/

snip--"According to the AP, the GOP lawmakers worried that women would abuse the law and purchase too many feminine hygiene products during the pause on state sales tax on some items — including computers and clothing. The pause lasts only one weekend, starting on the last Friday of July, the AP reported.


snip--"Eliminating the so-called "tampon tax" has been a growing movement in states across the country.

Advocates argue that feminine hygiene products are a basic necessity that should be added to a list of necessities that aren't subject to taxes, such as groceries and medicine."

snip--" Allison Wilson, a legislative assistant for Hensley, said the concern was over how much adding feminine hygiene products to the list of tax-free items would cost the state."

I feel some better when another states legislators are bigger fools then Ohio's are.

For the record you will need pads and tampons from 11ish to 60ish. Sanitary pads make great wound covers as well. I paid more in taxes for my last laptop computer then I did for a whole year of menstrual products

3. Why do men?

Tennessee is a weird state. I still can't get past taxing food and medicine when I lived there for five years.

4. Gee, they can't have them womenfolk going on a spending spree on feminine hygiene products.

It might wreck the state budgets if they can't rely on all that tax revenue.

That's about the most stupid argument I've ever heard.

7. While they're at it

they could eliminate sales tax on toilet tissue, too. That's a necessity.

8. I get your analogy, but men use TP too. And TP has been used as menstrual products as well.

Facepalm

11. Its just galling to me

that the regressive sales tax is charged on necessities. I used to live in the Northeast, where some states have done away with sales tax on clothing below a certain dollar amount. The same rationale that applies to exempting food and medicine would seem to apply to TP, feminine hygiene products, and even condoms.

9. Absurd beyond all understanding

Why are all these old creeps so obsessed with women’s hygiene and body issues? Do they get their jollies sitting around the statehouse thinking up ways to force women back into the dark ages? Why does anyone but especially a woman, vote to elect these dipshit misogynists? And the thought that these evil hussies will break the state’s coffers by buying too many tax free tampons. I just shake my head and mumble some obscenities....

10. The whole concept of tax free days is "eating the seed corn"

These igdits fight against a state income tax, tax everything else at almost 10%, and then try earn points with the public by offering tax free days. Most too stupid too fight their way out of a paper bag.
