The White House is moving forward with the White House Easter Egg Roll, despite closing its doors to all public tours because of the sequester spending cuts.
The White House Easter Egg Roll, a day full of games and food on the South Lawn for children and families, is a 135-year tradition. It will take place this year on April 1 and 35,000 people are expected to attend.

Putting all their eggs in ne basket....
Of course it will be only Same Sex Couples.
Hey, as long as it has to do with food you know that crew aint gonna miss it. moochie be havin some say so!
I have a friend who is truly an essential government employee, in military research. Sequester cuts are forcing him to trim his budget over 25% yet these buffoons can spend willy nilly on non-essentials like this fluff and non-American stuff like $250,000,000 to Syria and tanks to Egypt.
I am surprised that he hasn’t recanted the pardoning of last Thanksgiving’s turkey and ordered it slaughtered and eaten to save money.
You know he’s not going to cause pain to his donors and flunkies. That’s for you and I to suffer.
And lets not forget the planned trip to Martha’s Vineyard....
This years eggs will be filled with little IOU’s in them.
An outstanding comment.
And if the Republicans had any guts and creativity, they could make a devastating tv commercial based on that idea.
Didn’t they already try that PC stunt last year?
The male/male couples were baffled by the concept of an egg.
Well then why not just lock it up till 2016?
Bammy and mooche can go back to Chicago and enjoy the scenery.
American taxpayers can enjoy the savings, the peace and quiet of not enduring constant breathless butt smooching of the mouthpiece media and TV networks can get a break from near weekly interruptions when the emperor is told to read some propaganda somebody wrote for him.
He can get a web cam and a youtube channel. If the O-bots want to see the master they can click the vid link.
HA-HA, they will say that on MSNBS tonight.
My guess is that the damn government is going to go on spending what it wants where it wants for as long as it wants. I think this sequester crap is all just the latest parlor game. Chances are they don’t know how much they spend on anything and couldn’t reduce it even if they wanted to.
I suppose by having it on a weekday and AFTER Easter, they can expect a lower turnout... which will save a few bucks.
Santa, err, Easter Bunny has something to give away.
