That is not an isolated issue with the Obama administration. The same week that they announced that they were cancelling White House tours, they held a multimillion dollar concert and gave $250 million in taxpayer dollars to Egypt. We did not save a nickel with the cut of the White House tours because no one was laid off. They were just transferred to other government buildings.

Even with the 2.4% cut, he still has more FAA money than he requested. It is all a phony pony show.
I don't think the majority of people in the country understand that the sequester only cut expenses by 2.4%, and it is only 1.2% for this year because the budgeted funds have already been paid out through the end of June. No one in the Liberal media is reporting this.
