What a joke! So now B.O. is punishing tourists to get even for th sequester h suggestede in thew first place. I have a directive for him to make cuts: No more golf trips at taxpayer expense. And no more clay pidgeon practice. B.O., you're too stupid to have a gun.

Agreed, the moron was belching that the janitors and maids in the WH will have to take a pay cut. Duh, how about he and fat ass Moochelle cut their vacations and spending like drunken sailors.

On Friday, meanwhile, President Obama said that janitors at the U.S. Capitol would receive a pay cut due to the sequester cuts. Carlos Elias, the superintendent of the U.S. Capitol building and the Capitol Visitors Center, quickly emailed employees to say "This is NOT TRUE," adding that "The pay and benefits of EACH of our employees WILL NOT be impacted."

The prior Sunday, Education Secretary Arne Duncan had said on CBS' "Face the Nation" that "There are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips, who are getting notices that they can't come back this fall." He later acknowledged that he "misspoke" after fact checkers found no evidence for the claim.

there are 7 employees at the WH tour office, tours are self guided, you check out the guide, get a headset and go. I am assuming all 7 employees were fired and will be in the DC unemployment office Monday. Of course all 7 employees are paid less in a year than the cost of oblameos last little florida golf trip. this bozo of a pResident is a loser with a capital L.
