    Has the White House chef been furloughed?

    How about the White House groundskeepers?

    Since Obama won't allow public tours anymore we should consider the White House to be his personal residence.
    Since we are his landlords, we should insist that he mow his own lawn.

    Granted, he would have to find someone who really knows how to run a lawnmower; but after a little instruction he should be fine!

    Has he EVER actually worked a day in his life?

    If citizens can't visit the Grand Canyon, than a president can't visit a golf couse.

    Isn't that fair?

    If citizens have Obama Care, shouldn't the president, his family, and Congress?

    That's fair.

    I think somebody told Obama that his golf trips are not "government essential" business. If Obama wants to hit the golf course this weekend, he better sit down and come up with a deal he can live with.

    Hey Obama voters!

    How's that affordable insurance working for you? Finding those exchanges?

    Let's tax the rich a little more, and we can all have free coverage.

    Stop spending barack.

    You've added almost as much to the national debt(7 trillion) than every past president in the history of our country(10 trillion) combined.

    Stop spending money we don't have

    The only thing people are "entitled" to is what they earn.
