France’s Socialist President Spends $10,000 per Month on Barber

Looks like the French are taking a haircut regarding the return on their massive investment in Big Government:

The investigative and satirical newspaper Le Canard Enchaîné reported [last week] that President François Hollande’s personal hairdresser has been paid 9,895 euros — over $10,000 — per month since Mr. Hollande was elected in 2012…

Hollande is a Socialist. Socialists believe that if you produce more wealth than Big Government thinks you need, the excess should be confiscated in the name of those who produce less, and used to finance their own extravagant lifestyle. Even in the failing state of Venezuela, the socialist ruling class still lives high on the hog.

Here’s what French taxpayers get for $10,000/month:
