Congressman Proposes Cutting Off Obama Golf Funds Until He Quits Screwing The Public

Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert introduced an amendment to the Continuing Resolution that would not provide the White House with any taxpayer funds to transport President Barack Obama to and from any golf course until they resume White House public tours.

In a House floor speech, Gohmert said he filed the amendment with the House Rules Committee.

“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 reads.

“That way we will both work together so the president will not able to take a golf outing that causes 341 more federal officials to be furloughed and lose their job at least temporarily,” Gohmert said.

In the absence of a formal federal budget, Congress has to pass a Continuing Resolution to fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year.

Obama’s recent golf trip with Tiger Woods reportedly cost almost $1 million in taxpayer funds.

    He can go play golf. That’s fine with me. Just so long as he uses his new raise to pay for it.
