NY Rep super ticked at ‘aging Republicans’ because female staffers will now have to buy their own Tampons

Now Democrats want taxpayers to pay for Tampons???

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-N.Y., is upset Congress — see U.S. taxpayer — will not pay for women’s hygiene products for female staff after the House Administration Committee rejected an expense receipt.

 

The grandstanding Democrat told TMZ that he wrote a personal check for $37 to pay for the Tampons, although he did not explain why he felt women’s hygiene products should be provided for free.

“Republican congressional leadership is finding new ways to be clueless,” Maloney told TMZ, insisting it’s discriminatory for Congress not to pay for the Tampons.

“The fact is, this is a bunch of aging Republicans congressional leaders who have no clue what a modern workplace looks like,” the Democrat lawmaker declared.

There’s so much to unpack there, and the end result is that Maloney may be the one who’s clueless.

To begin with, House Speaker Paul Ryan is 48 years old, compared to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who’s a ripe 78 years of age. In all, the average age of the House GOP leadership team is 50, compared to the Democrat leadership’s 72.5.

As for aging Republicans, a Harvard CAPS/Harris’s poll showed that three of the top four candidates picked by Democrat voters to be their 2020 presidential nominee are septuagenarians, and the fourth pick is one year removed.

In furtherance of his grandstanding, Maloney posted a video on Twitter of himself writing that $37 dollar check.

The surprising thing is, or perhaps not in today’s entitlement world, there’s such a thing as a “menstrual equality” industry:

Of course, there was the prerequisite “Why do Republicans hate women” tweet:

But common sense was also represented, though the responses were more rare than you would hope:
