No you can't go see the people's house anymore. Sequester revenge is closing the white house tours. Little Barack is throwing a tantrum and it would be unseemly for anyone to see.

Thankfully, someone in the GOP is paying attention:

Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) introduced an amendment to the fast-moving continuing resolution spending bill that would bar funding for President Obama’s golf outings until the White House reopens for public tours.

Gohmert, who announced his amendment from the floor of the House, said Americans, whether Republicans or Democrats, will be greatly disappointed to come to Washington and not be able to get their tours of the White House. Many tours are planned well in advance.

The amendment states:

None of the funds made available by a division of this act may be used to transport the president to or from a golf course until public tours of the White House resume.

Gohmert cited an estimate by Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, that 341 federal employees could have avoided being furloughed had Obama not traveled to Florida for a three-day golf extravaganza.

“Perhaps, quitting furloughing all these federal employees, we’ll be able to get the Democrats and Republicans across America (and) people that don’t even have a Party because they’re just Americans – they’ll be able to get their tour of the White House and all it will cost is one or two golf trips less,” Gohmert said.

Yeah, the maturity of denying schoolkids White House tours, which cost nothing as they're conducted by volunteers.

I'm certain Obama will find a way to claim that black students are disproportionately affected by his suspension of WH tours; he will then blame Republicans for the suspension, claiming that they want to keep black students out of the White House.

But what a brilliant, thought out plan to reduce spending, cut the deficit, chip away at the debt and maybe, in another five years, produce a budget. Gotta give it to Sheik Obama, he's cutting like a surgeon.

What a jerk we're stuck with.

Spot on. After all, those poor black DC schoolkids can't afford field trips like privileged white kids. Federal buildings are all they've got.

Yep. It's funny that you praise the juvenile response from the GOP though.

Why is Oblamo cutting out golf trips juvenile? He's played over 100+ rounds in just four years. Besides the transportation what about the security costs.

The cats out of the bag on sequester. The democrats drama show and playing on the minds of citizens by cutting WH tours, TSA lines, meat inspections, parks have back fired.

The American people support spending cuts and the democrats attempting to make reductions in the areas most noticeable are making them out to be the phony cowards they truly are.

I also support Rand Paul's actions Wednesday. It is time someone stands up for the citizens of this country instead of the lip service Oblamo gives.
