Boehner criticizes stoppage of White House tours

House Speaker John Boehner speaks to the media after a meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House, March 1, 2013 in Washington, D.C.

This final n...on the way o... damn you, Dubner.

Okay, I'll think of something new. But anyway in the interests of equal time, this note today from the Speaker of the House John Boehner.

"While I'm disappointed the White House has chosen to comply with sequestration by cutting public tours," Boehner says, "I'm pleased to assure you that public tours of the United States Capitol will continue."

As well, I'm sure will the sequestration tit-for-tat.
