GOP Moves To Strip The Obamas of Transportation to Unofficial Events

WASHINGTON — The war between the GOP led Congress and the White House erupted again today as House Republicans moved to prevent the Obamas from using government vehicles as transportation to non-government events.

The House panel that drafted the legislation denies that it is maliciously motivated, citing “budgetary concerns.”

Key Republicans behind the bill say taxpayers should not bear the burden of getting the Obamas to and from television shows, Target, J Crew, the park, and any place not related to official business. The bill removes travel funding to and from events not endorsed as official by the GOP.

It’s time the Obamas learned a tough lesson,” the House Speaker told reporters. “Being first family does not entitle them to jet set across the globe at the expense of taxpayers.”

When asked about the Obama’s children’s transportation to school the House Speaker responded by saying, “Thousands of kids in America ride the cheese bus to and from school every day without event. I don’t see any reason why the Obama girls can’t do the same.”

A White House spokesperson responding to the move by the GOP said President Obama would exercise executive powers to veto the bill.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
