The Sequester Cut of White House Tours Equals 2 Hours of Air Force One

Most kids remember their first trip to Washington all their lives. Proud parents, their children in tow, visit the monuments, Arlington Cemetery, and other sights, but the highlight will always be the tour of the Capitol and the White House.

President Obama has opted to deprive American kids of this lifelong memory because the sequester cuts, which he describes as drastic, leave him without funds to offer tours of the White House. Sorry kids, the President says: “I tried hard to get the Republicans to adopt a balanced approach, but they wouldn’t budge. They had to protect Big Oil and corporate jets. You are left holding the bag. I can see you standing on Pennsylvania Avenue peeking through the locked gates. Sorry.”
