Obama To Shut Down White House tours To Cut Costs

GOP leaders and staffers are ridiculing Obama's decision to shut down the high-profile tours of the White House. “Canceling white house tours is childish and dishonest [Obamas’s] golf weekend in florida cost enough to keep the white house open for months,” said a tweet from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. “Obama should be challenged … this is silly and demeaning.” “White House cancels tours post sequester,” said a tweet from Brad Dayspring, a Senate spokesman. “Now I guess the only way to get inside Obama WH is to give $500,000 to OFA,” he said, evoking the current scandal over donations to President Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action lobby group. “Want to reschedule your canceled WH tour? That’ll be $500,000,” said a message from the National Republican Congressional Committee. The committee also tweeted out a quote from the White House’s website: “[T]he halls of gov’t are not reserved for a privileged few, and the [White House] should be no exception.” Is Obama right to shut down White House tours?
