INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (NETWORK INDIANA):  A national company is reducing the prices of some of its feminine hygiene products.

CVS has announced that it will be lowering the prices of its CVS Health and Live Better tampons, menstrual pads, liners and cups starting Thursday. CNN reports the prices will be 25% lower.

The Alliance for Period Supplies says that one in four women struggled to afford their period products within the past year.

In addition to dropping prices, the company is now also covering the cost of the sales taxes on certain products in 12 states.  These states are Arkansas, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Missouri, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin and West Virginia.

The company explained that the “pink taxes” in other states could not be paid because of laws that prohibit companies from covering customer taxes.

Even though Hoosier shoppers will still pay the sales taxes, they will see the reduced prices, which are being implemented across the country.

What is “pink taxes”??? Do Leftists always have to make crap up? Last I knew, If anybody purchases anything, you have to pay sales tax….otherwise its Discrimination for the Government to single out items as described in the “pink taxes”.

During a time when Everything is more expensive, I’m glad to know companies have found yet another way that we can exclude Men, and present Life in such a way that is unfair only to women.

…”struggled to afford their period products within the past year”…you better get on the Phone to all your Democratic politician Friends and tell them to stop Lying about Inflation…and to stop the Government from printing money!! Want proof…Inflation is still going up even after they passed the “Inflation Reduction Act”
