Rep. Gohmert (R-TX) shames the White House for cancellation of public tours

Earlier today, the White House cancelled its tours “due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration.” Tea Party ally Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) was on the ball, and within hours released the following amendment to H.R. 933, the Department of Defense, Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013, AKA the Continuing Resolution for the rest of the fiscal year: 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.

Thank These Conservative Leaders

This week, Congressman Paul Ryan was sworn in as the new Speaker of the House. While we have our concerns with Ryan, it was a long fought battle to remove John Boehner as Speaker - going all the way back to 2012.
