Free haircuts for the rich

Well...for Senators.

Saw this on the Hannity show last night. For the last 50 years a Senate barbershop, which has apparently given haircuts to senators for free, has been losing $100,000 a year for 10 years.

And they've finally decided to close it down???

What I want to know is, do our senators count the income from these free haircuts on their taxes?

(Because if you're a worker and your company gives you free gifts, you still have to count the cash value of that gift on your taxes.)

Are senators held to the same standard?

(When I did a Google search on this, I found an article in the Milwaukee Journal that said our politicians voted *themselves* the right to free haircuts and shaves in 1951.


Why do they get to vote anything for themselves, from free haircuts to pay raises. Don't we, the taxpayers, employ them?  Shouldn't it be *our* decision whether they get retroactive raises and free haircuts???,6199542
