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.”

    What a crock. Once again- the Sequester is a reduction in spending INCREASE, not an actual cut in spending. Obama is purposely hurting the most people possible for purely political gain.

        Um…dumb azz…your boy 0bama has been in office for a very long time. If he was incapable of handling the rigors of office he should've stayed in IL.

        And I know it's difficult for your low intellect but not everyone who opposes the spender-in-chief is a republican.

        Again…dumb azz
