    Many government employees are on furlough. Veterans have been barred from their memorials. Yet despite the temporary slowdown in government, there’s one thing still open: Obama’s golf course.

    Last week, the President paid a visit to one of his favorite courses at Andrews Air Force Base. Obama deemed that all military installations remain operational during the shutdown, and therefore, the golf course, too.

    Veterans visiting the Washington, D.C., area weren’t so fortunate. Even though many of landmarks like the World War II Memorial are normally open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Obama has chosen to barricade the public from entering.

    What are the President’s spending priorities?

    Americans are fed up with wasteful, frivolous, unneeded, reckless spending. It’s time for our leaders in Washington to begin cutting spending, starting with Obamacare.
