Earlier this year there was a lot of moaning and gnashing of teeth about the terrible Sequester spending cuts – listening to the politicians up in Washington you’d have thought the government was teetering on its last legs, on the brink of financial Armageddon, staring doom in the face.
President Obama even said the White House was in such dire straits – due to lack of money – he had to close down White House tours.
But now the Washington Post reports the President’s spending $100 million to visit three nations in Sub-Saharan Africa.
It’s a relief – the government’s not broke.
But our politics is still broken.
