So the gov't is going to charge the people an extra $1.29 a year just so they will be forced into choosing a business owned by a woman? I do not support affirmative action in any sense...equality yes, but not forced participation and exclusion of better qualified suppliers or manufacturers. According to US Dept of Labor statistics, most women are workers...not business owners. If you want to put America at the forefront of manufacturing so you can put more people to work, you need to support existing business first...not lamely attempt to create businesses out of thin air by forcing false support through taxation.
