Sequester? What Sequester? Obamas Prepping For 10th Taxpayer-funded Concert Tonight

Yet, the government cannot find the money to keep the White House open for tours.

President Obama, in 2009, said EVERYONE would have to sacrifice while he guides us through the worst economic recovery ever and also sequestration where he too said everyone would have to sacrifice.

That is, except for the Obama’s.

Instead, the federal government continues to hire and  wants to spend money on: funding studies like this one ($1.5 million) to study why lesbians are fat, send President Obama to spend quality time on his golf game with Tiger Woods, sending the First Daughter to New York, sending the First Lady around the country, and beginning preparations on yet another multimillion dollar vacation to Martha’s Vineyard. I guess the sky isn’t falling after all Mr. President?

Via White House Dossier:

Tonight’s special White House “celebration” of Memphis soul music marks the tenth time President and Mrs. Obama have been treated to an exclusive East Room “command performance” of American music featuring major stars, past and present.

While the performances are televised and celebrate the nation’s culture, some may wonder whether during an era of soaring deficits it is wise to stage what are also in effect private parties for the first couple.

And with this evening’s event, the performances are officially part of the “sequester-free zone” at the White House. As is well known, the daily White House tours did not make the cut.
