Obama has plenty of money for 2,700 tanks, 7,000 automatic rifles and 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, but no money for an Easter egg hunt.
Obama’s budget is 30% ($1 trillion) larger than the biggest budget prior to his Presidency, but he has no money for White House tours.

The Obama administration has already come under GOP criticism for canceling White House tours due to the mandatory, across-the-board cuts known as sequestration.
