I doubt they need 37 officers for 40 hours a week to have the tour unless they are going to fire some of them.

First place as federal le officers they already receive law enforcement availability pay to cover overtime which is 25% of their base pay. They will still receive this money whether they work or not.

I am not buying the savings numbers, as many say is just Obama trying to punish house members through whom the requests for tours go.

Obama does not want infidel American tourists walking around his temporary residence. He wants to walk around with his sandles and Muslim garb freely.

This accounts for the costs of paying 37 uniformed officers $50 an hour for 40 hours a week to secure the tour's route through the White House East Wing.

These guys lost their jobs? No? So then it's a 'progressive' cut.

Obama is making sure the cuts effect only the working middle class taxpayers as usual. The welfare queens plopping out babies from different fathers will alway get their WIC payments and free housing and medical care. Taxes have gone up , gas prices are going up sometimes by the hour in some states, all while he jets around on vacations and making speeches like he's still running for something .....I guess because he's good at running but he's a failure at leading.

Obama is the most incompetent man ever to live in he White House. He is an embarrassment to this Nation.

I hope we can survive the next four year with this INCOMPETENT BOOB at the Helm

How quaint. Todays Fox News headline-

"White House Blames Cuts for Nixing Tours, First Family Keeps Traveling"

I don't see the gop making much of a stink about the travels of the past republican first families, done on the US credit card also. Part of the very reason we are in debt.

Fair and balanced.(just in case you didn't recognize it)

You missed the mark by a mile. My post is nothing about what nobama says or doesn't say. If you can't argue with my opinions then why reply to them at all? Blind anger just makes no sense, it'll only stress you out and end up giving you a heart attack.
