Should Taxpayers Pay For a Politician's Makeup?


Over in merry olde England, there's a big, nasty poopstorm going down thanks to some members of Parliament.

Jo Swinson, a 29-year-old MP who earns the equivalent of more than $101,000 for her job, submitted receipts for an electric toothbrush, hairdryer, eyeliner, and lip liner. Swinson insists that she needs these items because she commutes to London from her home, and that she never expensed eyeliner. Do you think that politicians should have these expenses paid for, or are they just getting greedy?
