Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama pointed out that President Obama's golf weekend with Tiger Woods is equivalent to 341 furloughs for federal workers.
Imagine if Congressional junkets were also included in this total - how many more federal workers furloughs would be saved.
"While the White House operatives may think this attack is clever, it betrays an astonishing elitism: the federal government is perfect and requires no reform. That is why they have no plan to make our government leaner and more efficient. The President had 18 months to develop reforms to improve the government, but instead he announced furloughs of federal workers as a political cudgel. Yet, his golf weekend at the yacht club with Tiger Woods cost taxpayers over a million dollars—enough money to save 341 federal workers from furlough," Sessions writes.
