A proposal to include feminine hygiene products during Tennessee’s sales tax holiday faces resistance from lawmakers concerned about the lack of a limit on those purchases

A proposal to include feminine hygiene products during Tennessee’s sales tax holiday faces resistance from lawmakers concerned about the lack of a limit on those purchases.

According to the state bill ‘s fiscal note, Tennessee women spend about $120 per year each on feminine hygiene products (summary downloads as a PDF). At a 7% state sales tax, that works out to $8.40 per year. Some lawmakers believe that kind of incentive might send the 1,820,292 women in Tennessee between the ages of 15 and 55 on a tampon-buying spree. One of the state senators most concerned about the sales tax holiday? Dr. Joey Hensley (R-28). According to the AP, Sen. Hensley said, while debating against the bill, “I would think since it’s a sales tax holiday, there’s really no limit on the number of items anybody can purchase.” He added, “I don’t know how you would limit the number of items someone could purchase.” Interestingly, this same concern does not seem to apply to most other items on the list of tax-exempt items during the sales tax holiday.

Moderates Worry Klobuchar Splitting People-Who-Will-Vote-For-Anybody VoteNEW YORK—Noting that the Minnesota senator could be a potential “spoiler at the convention,” FiveThiryEight released a report Wednesday finding that moderate Democrats were worried Amy Klobuchar could split the crucial people-who-will-vote-for-anybody vote. “Klobuchar has a real path to the nomination if she can lock down this constituency of voters who just kind of support anyone whose name they heard recently,” said editor-in-chief Nate Silver, referring to the demographic as the Democratic party’s most consistent voting base. “We all expected Biden to consolidate this group, but he has surprisingly struggled to connect with people who don’t really want to consider why they’re casting a vote. Instead, it’s Klobuchar who looks to be the one speaking to their issues—which are vague and ill-defined. She’s definitely an appealing choice for Democrats who blindly vote for any random candidate with a ‘D’ next to their name.” The report concluded by citing Hilary Clinton’s stronghold over the voting block on her path to the 2016 nomination. amyklobuchar amyklobuchar Nailed it.
