Obama’s Golf Weekend With Tiger Woods Cost Same As 341 Furloughed Workers


US President Barack Obama jokes around w

During his press conference this afternoon President Obama blathered about how Capitol janitors could be furloughed and lose pay, thanks to the sequester he concocted and signed into law. He didn’t mention how much the cost of his recent golf weekend with Tiger Woods cost. According to Senator Pete Sessions (who really lit into Obama for his campaign style rhetoric) it comes to the cost of furloughs for 341 federal workers. That’s a lot of janitors.

“While the White House operatives may think this attack is clever, it betrays an astonishing elitism: the federal government is perfect and requires no reform. That is why they have no plan to make our government leaner and more efficient. The President had 18 months to develop reforms to improve the government, but instead he announced furloughs of federal workers as a political cudgel. Yet, his golf weekend at the yacht club with Tiger Woods cost taxpayers over a million dollars—enough money to save 341 federal workers from furlough,” Sessions writes. – See more at: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/senator-obamas-golf-weekend-tiger-cost-much-341-federal-workers-furloughed_704915.html#sthash.Oqr6T2ci.dpuf
