As long as President Obama keeps the White House closed to the general public, Rep. Louie Gohmert R-Texas think he shouldn’t be relying on taxpayer dollars to transport him to the golf course.

“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,” reads the text of the Amendment. 

The White House Visitor Center announced that all public tours would be canceled beginning Saturday March 9 due to the sequestration cuts.
