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.

      Uh…dumb azz? Everyone knew about this since 2011.

      Please tell me you're NOT defending 0bama's choice to keep the spending rate increases in place?

      How man "entitlements" are you on? Are you an employee of 0bama (govt worker)

        No Jack ass,He was saying that right wing nut jobs like you,have created more spending.I dont work for the government either i run a small metal fabracation buisiness.We build America.The only thing you republicans fabracate is lies.So the president played golf.At least hes didnt go hunting the day after 911.You rebublicans are scared and love to shoot at things that dont shoot back.

      • ClanSmokeJaguar

        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
