— deficit the Senate barbershop has run per year for the last 15 years, according to "The Weekly Standard." Senate Sergeant at Arms Terry Gainer will take the barbershop private this year through leveraging sequestration.

Wait, what?  There's a Senate barbershop that charges such a low rate for a haircut to these well off nitwits that it has COST a total of over $5.2M over the last 15 years?  WHAT?  There has been quite a bit of Republican control over these last 15 years; where was the outrage over this particular piece of stupidity?  Oh, but *the Post Office*, that has to go.  Got it. 

Why the he!! does there need to be a Senate barbershop in the first freakin' place?  Are they too good for a regular, private enterprise, free market salon for their haircuts? 

Pardon me while I go hit my head against something.

I guess Senator's grooming budgets will have to "get a haircut"...

Does this mean that senators will have to pay market rates for their haircuts? Let's see how they enjoy the workings of the free market.

Out of the last 15 years the Senate has been controlled by the Dems for 10 of them, but you go on and post lies as if they are facts.

@curt3rd And the House? And the White House? 

I said, quote, "quite a bit of Republican control" not specifying what branches, where did I lie?  

Which party is the party of austerity and reducing government again?  One would think the Republicans of any Congress would have been all over this as an easy piece of waste to cut, but for 15 years it has dragged on.

If a Dem would have ever proposed to do away with it, would Reps have even voted for it?

Sorry about calling you a liar.

The branch was implied because we are talking about the Senate barbershop.
