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.”
