Obama Can't Give Visitors Tours at the White House, But He Can Pay His Official WH Calligraphers $277,000 Per Year

The Washington Monument strategy, make it as painful as the public as possible so that they insist that the money begin flowing to DC again. Always cut the critical or highly visible stuff first, never the unnecessary stuff, because the public wants the latter stuff cut. If you cut that, they'll just say "Good."

So make it painful. Cut police, cut firemen, close schools, cancel WH tours.

Louis Gomert attempted to make it a rule of the Continuing Resolution that no federal funds shall be expended to ferry Obama to or from a golf course so long as WH tours remained cancelled.

He's now asking Obama to voluntarily give up those expensive taxpayer-funded jaunts, to shift the saving to the tours program.

You can guess Obama's answer, I'm sure.
