What A World, Pt. Two

In discussing the current political agenda with my father, he mentioned something that used to go one in the state legislature when he was a young man.

According to him, in the good ol' days, the Kentucky State Legislature would introduce the same bill at the beginning of every session, a bill that would levy a tax on hairdressers. All of the hairdressers in the state would flock to Frankfort to...lobby...against it.

Apparently, Kentucky state hairdressers aren't the brightest bunch, since the legislature did this for almost a decade before anyone caught on to the real reason they were introducing the bill.

I didn't see THAT on Schoolhouse Rock ("I'm just a bill...").
