On Thursday’s edition of ‘The Five,’ Eric Bolling made the Obama administration an offer he thinks they can’t refuse! Tours of the White House have been cancelled because of the sequester, but Bolling said, “If I can get the doors open, I’ll pick up the tab!”

“Let these families take their White House tours next week and I’ll cover the added expenses. Word is it will cost around $74,000.”

Was the president actually claiming there was not a single other government item—not one—that could be cut instead of the White House tours? Really?…

Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said in an interview Tuesday night. “We did not receive a single answer.”…

…In other words, Obama Cabinet officials, if they chose, could have an enormous amount of flexibility in making the required budget cuts. They just don’t want to. “We’ve had zero answers,” repeated Issa…
