This is just ridiculous. This is so California.
In a move that will cost the state of California 55 million dollars in revenue, diapers, tampons, and pads are now tax free. YAY!
Gina Guerro, according to Townhall.com, whined,
I mean, these are things that we have to use. We don’t have too many other options but I think any way we can save some money, especially with kids and ourselves, is a great thing.
Is food taxed in California? Do residents pay for water to their homes? Aren’t these we HAVE TO USE. I would say clothing is pretty necessary as well.
And you don’t have to use disposable diapers or feminine products. There are reusable versions of both products that would allow you to minimize your sales tax expense. See cloth diapers and diva cups.
How did the brilliant legislators in California cherry pick these two products? Sounds like pandering to the woman vote to me.
Why not pander to ALL the vote and just eliminate sales tax altogether. California is bankrupt anyway.
