White House cancels tours because of sequester


LINK

What a joke. All for show and nothing else.

quote:

The White House announced Tuesday that it was canceling all public tours of the president’s home because of the sequester spending cuts.

“Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours,” the White House said in an email.

The notice comes as both the White House and Congress try to find cuts to their own budgets as part of $85 billion in cuts to the entire government.

At the Capitol, staffers who use the building’s West Front entrance that looks out on the National Mall were told Tuesday that door would be closed as of next week in order to save money.

Our great grand kids shouldn't have to be paying for those tours anyway.

This entire administration is like a collision between a bad joke and a frigging nightmare.

This is ridiculous. Interns give these tours. Interns cost nothing. This is all theater.

Why does nobody call him out on being a complete spoiled brat?

There are thousands upon thousands of completely worthless programs than should be cut long before we even get things as simple as this.

It's almost certainly "all theater" but when the White House is open to the public.....they're going to need more than free interns secure the place.

That was the whole point of the sequester. To put forward an alternative so ugly congress would have to strike a deal.

You liberals truly are complete and utter morons. If any human being actually believes this, then you should just end it now, and stop taking up the thinking mans air.

How fricking stupid does the Obama regime think we are?

Meh, don't answer that. He did get re-elected.
