The List: Unnecessarily Shut Down by Obama to Inflict Public Pain

   < < Go Back

While our president still enjoys his essential employees and locations: the White House chefs, Camp David, and a military golf course, there doesn’t seem to be any question that in mercenary pursuit of a political win, this White House is determined to unreasonably punish as many everyday people as possible. And this includes children sick with cancer. That might sound like hyperbole, but it is not.

[My} list of 47 illogical, unnecessary, and shockingly spiteful moves our government is making in the name of essential and non-essential.

And, FoxNews reported some of the 47 outrageous ways the Obama administration used the government shutdown to inflict pain on Americans.

– Refusing to fund last-chance experimental treatment for children with cancer, even when the House passed funding for NIH, just for this purpose.

– Temporarily shutting down the Amber Alert website for missing children

– Forbidding priests on military bases to conduct Mass and baptisms.

– Blacking out sports and entertainment programming for our troops overseas.

– Instructing park service rangers to make life “difficult for people.”

– Forcing residents out of private homes that sit on federal lands.

– Shutting down Mt. Rushmore AND a viewing area on a highway outside the park.

And perhaps the most offensive of them all…The Obama administration denied death benefits to the families of fallen warriors.

It doesn’t get more noxious than this.

This is nothing new for this ethically-corrupt administration.

In 2012, as part of the “sequestration” deal, Obama was forced to make cuts. Everyone knows there are untold billions of dollars wasted every week by this bloated government.

But what did he cut?

School children trying to visit the White House on educational trips to the nation’s capital found Obama had cut all tours of the White House.
