    Default White House CLOSED to Public Tours!

    The sequester reductions have been so debilitating that the VOLUNTEERS who give tours of the Whitehouse to the public have been dismissed!!
    OUR Whitehouse is closed!!!!

    The enormous savings from the cancellations-----$0.00

    Volunteers don't get paid.
    What a studious cut..................

    Pathetic...............

    Not nearly as much as there are when The First Lady takes separate planes, crew, secret service etc. to go to the same destination as POTUS because she wants to be there an hour or two earlier... (Which seems to be frequently)

    The current regime uses every possible event to create a "doomsday scenario" when it benefits them politically.

    And now the traditional Easter Egg hunt may be cancelled as well ... even though Carney mentioned that the egg hunt is "funded" through egg sales, etc.
