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 ó 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."

1. Oh FFS!!

This is too ridiculous for words!

Yeah, the bar in Ohio is pretty low.... but some states I see have managed to go even lower ....

Why are these old creeps so preoccupied with womenís body issues? Itís sickening.
