If they’re going to cut something, instead of hair how about they cut the budget… or does that make too much sense to career politicians?

Obviously, the Senate did cut the budget, their personal budgets, by not paying their barbers!

Corporate greed?
Nope, just more welfare payouts.

$500,000 for a bailout? Obviously the barbershop is not working on a razor thin margin.

Perhaps time to trim the fat along with the hair?

There are layers to this story.

Without the money this would have been a close shave?

They might be wise to keep some cash handy in a private ‘stache.

They are on the cutting edge, though.

All they need to do is trim the budget.

Afro a near collapse of the barbershop, it is no surprise that the bailout did its part and combed through the resources of the government to ensure that they could continue to clip the tax payer yet again. Oh well, if I complain they will just give me the brush off.

Hopefully these barbershop bailouts don’t become a permanent part of the budget.

Y’alls razor sharp wit just too much for me, so I’ll just tip my hat to you punsters and admit that you are the cream of the crop.

Besides, all this talc of shaving gets under my skin.

Maybe if the politicos werem’t such cheap ass SOB’s and would leve a legtimate tip this wouldn’t bea problem. Though I think $27 for a guys cut is a little much. My hair is halfwasy down my back, and wash, cut and blowdry is about $20-$25 bucks. If you JUST get the haircut, its $5.

I pay 8 to 10 euros for a cut…and that includes a 2 Euro tip.
