last year the white-house budget was 1.4 billion...don't think much of that was spent on public tours.
So, have the employees who arrange and conduct the tours been taken off the payroll ? That's the point of this whole thing, isn't it ?
Closing La Casa Blanca. Interesting symbolism. You, the hoi polloi, can go entertain yourselves elsewhere, you're inconvenient, and I need the power of optics. How do the democrats get away with saying cutting spending will hurt the economic recovery, but raising taxes will not.
Would not want to see the disgraced White House at this time anyway.
I think we should close the whole place down and put Osbama up in a Motel 6.
“Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013".
Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that we have had to lay off all but one of Michelle Obama's 25 servants.
he is not an intelligent person when it comes to this sort of thing. his goal is to tear down the republican party and most everyone knows it. it will surely back fire on him, it is time to take up arms against his agendas.
Can we ground Air Force 1 & 2 for 6 months? Can all Fed workers making over $100K take a 15% pay cut?
Like all the WH tour guide staff are laid off or something -- it would really be a start!
they are so full of their own BS!! ***Email tells feds to make sequester as painful as promised***
He is like a petulant little child and is probably angry that a lot of this is being taken with a grain of salt. Sooo it's payback time and bet there is more to come.
So, he was visiting wounded veterans at Walter Reed ...... it couldn't be that he was threatening the Benghazi survivors, could it?
BTW, I wouldn't go to visit the White House while he is occupying it. He is so narcissistic that he would think I was supporting him if I went while he is there.
And the communist media won't question their dear leader on his lavish lifestyle, but it's okay to deny America access to their House.
I'd venture to say that most Americans could care less about visiting as they're likely to be saving their pennies instead of wasting them in DC.
The sky is falling...the sky is falling.
I feel sorry for those that have planned for years to take their families to Washington and tour the historic sites including the White House. Maybe they should all write the president and tell him to stop traveling at OUR expense and keep the White House Tours open. Or, better yet, why don't they cut their staff by half and live with less. like the rest of us. By the way, how much could it possibly cost to open the White House to tours? Or, is he just "setting an example"?
Well here's the leak on the release of 5,000 criminal illegal aliens under cover of Sequester http://weaselzippers.us/2013/03/05/house-gop-obtains-ice-memo-detailing-plans-to-release-5000-illegal-immigrants-under-guise-of-sequester-cuts/
I'll be in DC in 5 weeks... poor me! Well, on second thought. I would rather visit the White House when there is someone inhabiting it that actually has respect for our country and the constitution.
Yet, the Feds are still hiring:
...However, Odumbo found an extra $60million to train terrorists in Syria? Whatever, Odumbo, whatever....
Cool, but 0, make sure you give Egypt thier ummmm I mean our money on time. Yeah, show the American people that foreign aid to these creeps and Syria is so much more important than our National Parks and the other bs your telling us. How this guy is still not named leader for life is beyond me. With all that he has gotten away with up until now I don't understand how he has not come out and suspended all future elections. I am dead serious.
Sure the mean ol' republicans who allowed dear leader's desired sequester has caused havoc for all who wanted to have a public tour of the White House aka the People's house, but hey, if you happened to donate $500,000 to dear leader's campaign, you may be in luck. The Lincoln Bedroom may be available. http://www.wnd.com/2013/02/is-the-lincoln-bedroom-for-rent-again/
funny...donations for that bedroom continue to rise (...was it not only 250,000 for the Clintons?
maybe it has 3000 thread sheets! :-)
No worries. The entire building is going to need to be disinfected after that chump is finally thown out on his arse.
You aren't wrong. Moochelle's mama is into voodoo (Santeria).
