I thought Obama was going to take care of this as soon as he got in office the first time. Pelosi told us everybody needs to take a cut. Maybe she meant "haircut" on the taxpayers dime.
Sorry Phil, Jason wants to go back to talking about Bush and WMDs. He's not interested in the wastes of taxpayer funds under Obama's watch.

Haha. This punk Rob just needs to find a real job. I'll lay money on it that the derelict doesn't have one, nor is he even capable of one more than making sandwiches part-time at subway. Rob is a perfect example of whats wrong in America today.

No but he let it go on. What about that surgical knife he said he would use.

You should be happy Jason it is a Democrat for once that is pushing for the cuts.

"Paul Leonard, a former Democratic lieutenant governor who is an adjunct professor of political science at Wright State University, said:“I think it is the ultimate hypocrisy for any legislator in Congress who is arguing for cuts from the social side of the budget to not include their own budget. They need to lead by example and make some serious cuts.”
The legislative-branch budget has grown 73 percent since 2000. The 2013 appropriations request is $4.5 billion, up 4.8 percent over 2012. Included in the sum is funding for the Senate Hair Care barbershop, congressional dining rooms, gymnasiums and many other conveniences the average American could never afford, yet we’re footing the bill for our representatives under the theory that providing these services close at hand allows congressional members to save time and focus on their jobs.
“It smacks of elitism,” said Mark Caleb Smith, director of the Center for Political Studies at Cedarville University.“While trimming the Senate salon will do little to balance the budget, allowing it to run such a large deficit indicates a lack of seriousness at best, and immorality at worst. It looks shocking when juxtaposed with the financial and fiscal difficulties our nation is now encountering.”

I doubt that the village idiot with many names has a job. My guess is that isp of "united states" probably means that Jason had all of them locked up in some federal prison!

Poor Phil, the other whiny bagger starts these dumbass threads and can't even keep his posts alive.... This one got clipped. Pun Intended!

I think the poster's point was that instead of rehashing some inane attack on Bush, why not address something that is still resulting in the waste of taxpayer money.

Keep in mind, Obama, in what more and more people agree was an amateur stunt to deflect blame onto the republicans again, used his sequestration failure as an excuse to close White House tours. It blew up in his face. If Obama were genuinely strapped for cash the perk of hair cuts for senators who certainly get paid well enough to afford their own grooming might just be a wiser choice.

In every aspect, a moron who can't grasp the idea that this president just put the most unpopular group of government employee's hair ahead of Americans' ability to visit the house they pay for is truly the perfect example of what's wrong in America today.

I suppose our resident Topix twerps could dial up their Congressperson, complain and demand accountability instead of trying to blame Obama for this. Afterall, spending on this program appears to have been going on since at least 1997. I'll bet the twerps won't though.

Smart people will continue to hold Obama accountable for frivolous spending whether the Useful Idiots approve or not. After all, it was his own Sequestration that created this sudden realization we have a spending problem and according to Obama prompted the closing of White House tours. Typically of course he pointed fingers and blamed it on the CIA, however, if such drastic measures as that need to be taken, I don't think it's at all unfair to ask that the Senators go down to the local SportClips to help him out.

Obama said he was going to cut the pork. He lied but you don't care about those lies from your side. And he is not trying to get rid of it now either. Is there going to be a Easter egg roll for the kids or do we not have enough money for that?

No, but I have a phone number for you, St. Stevie:

Not sure they'll be able to shock the moron out of you, but they might be able to help you with that tourette syndrom, and multi-personality problem you seem to have picked up.

You say lowly educated idiots and on multiple threads in just a few minutes you have had multiple spelling errors. We don't listen to O'Reilly because you said you don't believe anything he says. Are you trying to say he is relevant and that is why you must criticize him?

What a fool! Start a new thread, don't piggyback on other threads. Can't defend the subject so he's got to change it all together.

The Republican controlled House privatized their salon and it actually makes money
