U.S. Spends $1.18 Million on Puppets Amid Sequester


The recent canceling of White House tours in the name of sequester-related cuts understandably has disappointed children and families grousing.

Canceling tours of “the people’s house” saves taxpayers an estimated $18,000 a week, or $936,000 a year.

Putting that figure in perspective, the U.S. federal government has spent more on puppets and puppetry-related expenses than it would cost to fund an entire year’s worth of White House tours.

Yes, puppets.
