White House Tours Back On
Posted by madjillmom on October 18, 2013
Pres. Obama has decided to allow White House tours again. Sequestration was the reason they originally suspended White House tours for students and others. Sequestration is still on for everyone else, but somehow the Secret Service has found a pot of money to make the tours again available.
It seems the White House understands the optics of the usual over the top Christmas parties and decorating in the age of sequestration shutting down tours.
Everyone knows that the tours could have been funded other ways with a reasonable prioritization of the funds available. Obama wanted us to feel the pain. But he wants to have a lot of good parties over the Christmas season, so her come the tours.
How stupid do you think we are?
