If the White House is going to cancel all public tours, then one congressman is going to cancel President Obama’s golf outings.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) has submitted an amendment to the House GOP’s continuing resolution that would prohibit the use of federal money to transport the President to or from a golf course until the White House resumes tours, as The Washington Examiner reported.
“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,” the amendment to the continuing resolution states.
Talk about hitting the President where it hurts.
Curbing President Obama’s golf outings is wishful thinking, however, since the House Rules Committee approved a rule for the continuing resolution that prevents amendments from being considered when the House starts work on the bill this week.
