Why it’s become clear that Obama’s White House is open to the rich and closed to the poor

Posted by on Mar 17, 2013 at 12:37 am

Since last weekend, Mr and Mrs Regular Citizen have been denied the access people used to be granted to tour the White House, purportedly because of the clampdown on federal spending since the “sequester” that imposed cuts across the board.

These tours, most recently guided by volunteers though monitored by paid Secret Service staff, have been an American tradition since John and Abigail Adams, the first White House residents, personally hosted receptions for the public.

And their cancellation is an austerity measure that saves a pittance, while more frivolous taxpayer funding for items like the White House dog walker continues.

Meanwhile, noble Americans can buy time with the president for a suggested donation of $500,000 to his new campaign group, Organising for Action.

Full story.

    But but I thought the black Lenin was busy fighting for me. He helped me out in January with that tax increase that was all Bushies fault. The healthcare disaster will be the next way comrade dear leader helps me out. To each according to his needs! Tax the rich. Romney is the devil. Evil corporations. Power to the people. Yo where my sail fawn and welfare check?

    Those that eyes to see and earsto hear knew this in 2008. A third rate hack from Chicago of all places that lived on land acquired in a sweetheart deal from a guy now sitting in prison. A guy who turned off AVS to launder money. Who received more money from Wall st. than McCain. And it’s supposedly coming clear in 2013? Please.
