Reasons I’m voting for Rebecca Kleefisch on August 9, #49: The pink tax

POSTING A REASON DAILY UNTIL THE PRIMARY

Rebecca plans to push taxpayers toward a 3.54% flat income tax on the way to eliminating the state income tax completely. The tax cut will make Wisconsin the most income taxpayer-friendly state compared to its neighbors. She also signed the Americans for Tax Reform Taxpayer Protection Pledge, memorializing her commitment to oppose net tax increases.

And here’s one we’ve haven’t heard much about at all during the campaign. Rebecca wants to end gender-specific sales taxes.

What does that mean?

Obnoxious. That’s what Rebecca calls the tax on feminine products.

“We don’t tax necessities like food and medical supplies, and we should not have a sales tax on other hygiene necessities,” says Rebecca. “The first state in the nation to pass the 19th Amendment guaranteeing equality in voting should not be the last state in the nation to extend basic tax fairness to all necessary purchases.”
