By JAVIER MANJARRESWhile President Obama shuts down the White House’s public, self-guided tours, Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis wants everyone to know that ‘Mi casa es su casa.’ Translation, for all of you in Rio Linda (H/T Rush Limbaugh) my house is your house. DeSantis has announced that his office will continue to offer and conduct tours of the Capitol, simply because he believes that such tours are part of his congressional offices ‘constituent services’ responsibility.
“Under sequestration, the White House should be looking to eliminate wasteful spending in their budget, such as the $277,050 they spend each year to employ 3 calligraphers. Instead, the White House has decided to ban our nation’s citizens from attending tours of the People’s House.
For my constituents who were hoping to visit the White House, I want you to know that my office is still open for business and we will be happy to arrange a Capitol tour for you.”-Rep.Ron DeSantis
Earlier, Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert filed legislation to specifically defund Obama’s golf outings. Share the story below.
