White House cancels tours, blames sequester

A popular tourist spot in the nation’s capital is now closed to the public thanks to the sequester.

The White House Visitor Center’s hotline said tours of the White House will be cancelled beginning Saturday.

This could create problems for lawmakers as requests for tours are made through members of Congress.

The White House said the tours will not be rescheduled and the freeze will be in effect “until further notice.”
