Speaker Newt Gingrich is outraged by the White House decision to cancel tours, calling the move “childish.” Last night ON THE RECORD at 10pm/ET, Speaker Gingrich told us his plan to save the tours:
GINGRICH: If the White House would tell us how much it costs, I suspect we could find three or four people who’d put up the price. We can subsidize the tours. The idea…
VAN SUSTEREN: So are you announcing tonight that you’ll start a fund to pay for tours of the White House?
GINGRICH: If the White House would tell us what much it takes, we will raise the money to enable the White House tours to continue, period. I have no doubt about this.
We now know it costs $74,000 a week to run the White House tours…so will President Obama take Speaker Gingrich up on his offer so little kids can tour the White House again? What reason could he have to turn him down? What do you think of Speaker Gingrich’s plan?
