White House Cancels Easter Egg Roll & Tours, But Sends 500 Million To The Palestinians
Back in my teaching days, many years ago, one of the things I liked to ask the class to consider was this: Imagine a government agency with only two tasks: (1) building statues of Benedict Arnold and (2) providing life-saving medications to children. If this agency’s budget were cut, what would it do?
The answer, of course, is that it would cut back on the medications for children. Why? Because that would be what was most likely to get the budget cuts restored. If they cut back on building statues of Benedict Arnold, people might ask why they were building statues of Benedict Arnold in the first place.
The example was deliberately extreme as an illustration. But, in the real world, the same general pattern can be seen in local, state and national government responses to budget cuts.” — Thomas Sowell
Even though the sequestration only reduces the rate of spending, as opposed to actually cutting spending, the Obama Administration has been releasing captured illegal aliens, cancelling White House tours and cutting back on the White House Easter Egg roll for children. All this is supposedly because it’s short on funds.
Yet, after meeting with Palestinian leaders earlier this week, Barack Obama is now sending 500 million dollars to the Palestinians that had been frozen by Congress. This just shows you how Barack Obama is trying to mislead the American people. On the one hand, Obama is pleading poverty and saying that he doesn’t have the money for White House tours or the $164 a day it costs to hold illegal aliens with criminal records, but on the other, he has the money to send half a billion dollars to the anti-American, anti-Semitic, terrorist supporting thugs who run the Palestinian territory.
Part of being a leader is setting priorities that put the needs of the American people first. Too bad we don’t have a leader in the White House.
