President Obama's Cancellation Of White House Tours Being Met With Criticism From Congress

March 6. 2013

Barack Obama

Angered by $85 billion dollars in government budget cuts , U.S. President Barack Obama has cancelled all White House tours that were available to the public. This unnecessary move has upset citizens and congresspeople alike. House Speaker John Boehner branded Obama's move inappropriate stating, "The President is trying to make it tough on members of Congress. It's just sick."

In response to the President's decision on this matter, congressman Louie Gohmert has proposed legislation which would, "Prevent any public funds from being used 'to transport the President to or from a golf course until public tours of the White House resume. We will be able to get the Democrats and the Republicans across America ... to get their tour of the White and all it will cost is one or two golf trips less.'"

Looks like the president has a fight on his hands. The Judiciary Report is not in agreement with the president's decision. Why punish the American people over his fight with Congress. Punishing the people is not a good political platform. It will be perceived as the equivalent of a rattle-throwing tantrum over not getting one's way.
