Are tampons really expensive enough to need tax exemption?

Seems kind of unnecessary.

Someone I know was railing about tampons/pads being subject to a 'luxury tax' in my state. I told them that unless they plan to plant, grow and produce said product then its a luxury, and they conceded.
I don't see laws like this being passed in most of the US. Maybe Commiefornia.

They have... "other" options, if it's that great of a hardship.

If they stop taxing tampons then they should stop taxing other necessary items for hygiene, like soap and razors.

Not true, the taxes are another way for the state to earn their tax revenue for their state budget, just like income or property tax.

Even if they did give the tax exemption they would have to either raise taxes somewhere else or cut spending somewhere.

Tax exemption for tampons. Really? Skirting into the realm of "exemption abuse." I'd much rather have the government keep their noses out of my reproductive business as much as possible, and I turn my nose at this coddling nonsense.

While that is true, sales taxes in general put more burden on the poor, so I would be in favor of doing away with sales taxes and redistributing them into income taxes.

As for the topic, tampons are a necessity, but so are many other things which are taxed. I would be in favor of doing away the with the taxes on all of those things, but picking and choosing just feels like someone trying to buy goodwill.
