Why don’t people take the sequester seriously? How about this:
In its bid to make the sequester as painful as possible, the White House announced Tuesday that it is canceling all visitor tours of the White House “during the popular Spring touring season.” This fits President Obama’s political strategy to punish the eighth graders visiting from Illinois instead of, say, the employees of the Agriculture Department who will attend a California conference sipping “exceptional local wines” and sampling “tasty dishes” prepared by “special guest chefs.”
Anyone doubt there will be plenty of stories like this one in the coming weeks? Pete and other Twitterites might enjoy the Tom Coburn twitter feed as a source of daily outrage about the way the executive branch manages taxpayer money. What do you suppose is worse, the sequester or the political use it put to?
