Amendment To Continuing Resolution Would Bar Obama Golf Outings On Public Dime
At least until PINO Obama resumes White House tours
(Daily Caller) Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert introduced an amendment to the Continuing Resolution that would not provide the White House with any taxpayer funds to transport President Barack Obama to and from any golf course until they resume White House public tours.
In a House floor speech, Gohmert said he filed the amendment with the House Rules Committee.
“None of the funds made available by a division of this act may be used to transport the president to or from a golf course until public tours of the White House resume,” the amendment reads.
“That way we will both work together so the president will not able to take a golf outing that causes 341 more federal officials to be furloughed and lose their job at least temporarily,” Gohmert said.
Exactly why did Obama cancel White House tours? If I had to hazard a guess, it was in a pique of fit, in order to make a statement. Plus, really, why would he want those kinds of people hanging around his house? But, mostly because he’s a chump who wants to make the Sequestration as painful as possible. Because getting a slight reduction in the increased appropriations is a problem for Democrats.
Again, here’s how it works. Let’s say that The Department Of Transporting Obama To Campaign Speeches received $1 billion during the previous fiscal year. They were scheduled to get $1.1 billion this fiscal year. Instead, they will get $1.08 billion, which apparently means doooooooooooom and that the agency cannot operate with more than they previously received.
Anyhow, many Republicans are making fun of Obama for this shutdown of tours. But, here’s a question: why in the hell are we doing a CR when Congress should be passing an ****ing budget? Was that not part of the deal to raise taxes?
