image The case Warren v. District of Columbia involves three women who shared a house. Two men broke into the house and began raping one of the women. Her two roommates heard their roomate’s screams and called the police. The police officers that were dispatched drove around the house, knocked on the door, and then left after there was no answer. The two girls continued to hear their roommates screams from the floor below and again called police begging for help. This time, despite promises of help from the dispatcher, no officers were even dispatched to help the girls.

Congressional Haircut Deficit

Posted on May 1st, 2013 by Ben Spera

Biden_120719_05425x283It seems the base congressional salary of $174,000 per year just isn’t enough to pay for basic necessities like haircuts. That would be why the taxpayers are subsidizing their Congressional Hair Salon to the tune of over $400,000 last year.

When budget cuts are brought up congress quickly pushes military healthcare and public services into the line of fire, all the while living fat off of our wallets with unnecessary privileges such as this. In the words of  Queen Marie Antoinette, “Let them eat cake!”
