The Pain of Sequestration Felt at the White House

995728_10151752491239656_1220271510_n Today I had the genuine pleasure of seeing my beloved Louisville Cardinals receive their perfunctory handshake and commendation from the President for emerging victorious from the NCAA basketball tournament.

But as I waited with 200 or so other people for everything to kick off, we were entertained by the band pictured above. If this is the band they bring out during tight budgets imposed by sequestration, I can’t wait to see the band they bring out during the extravagant good times.

White House tours, the most visible interaction that the hoi polloi might have with POTUS, are still on hiatus.
