The Senate barbershop gets a trim.


The barbershop of the U.S. Senate has run deficits of approximately $350,000 a year for each of the last 15 years. So Senate sergeant at arms Terry Gainer has decided to try out a new model, one that has looked rather unfashionable during the Obama era: privatization.

Gainer has tried to trim Senate Hair Care Services for the past few years. Now the political climate troubling everyone else on Capitol Hill is allowing him to move faster than he anticipated towards privatizing it completely.

Congress critters are well known for not paying their debts. They exempt themselves from laws they pass and give themselves perks but in the end these folks are known to abuse the system they demand that others follow.


Isn’t this how the Boston Massacre was instigated? A British soldier refused to pay for a haircut?
