On the weekends FOX Report Weekend talking.
About the White House tour is being cut my father served this country as many Americans have loved ones who did.
I mean it is the people's house they were running green fountains this weekend we could -- the outside of our house but we couldn't get inside.
-- -- to work.
It's been so we're looking for areas it's kind of a theme here on foxnews.com.
Where the sequester really hurts.
And you have looked into another area a six figure job that was created for one group.
While others language tell me about it well what.
We're looking -- -- the contrast between where there's sequestered cuts seem to be.
Made in a way that they can be felt painfully sometimes by the White House tour exactly.
And yet during idol season start and behind the scenes the we.
The White House continues to spend.
And as it did before the -- cut so -- I'm making -- -- series we contrast this to.
And what we found in today's story is it.
-- Indian reservations which are federally funded school districts face brutal cuts.
And at the same time the White House -- march 7 barely a week after the sequester cuts took effect.
The creation is job this.
The executive director of the White House initiative -- this job.
Lindsay do it's a -- executive director of the White House initiative on educational excellence for African Americans.
And -- but it has the job David Johns is by all accounts a very qualified guys.
He's a former New York City elementary school teacher he's worked on the hill for Charlie Rangel and for Tom Harkin.
-- you don't may appear to be used to sell them that do the White House is creating these types of jobs even as it forces painful cuts.
I've read this it's a little additional paragraph here is has put.
Previously the White House has created similar initiatives to serve Hispanics Asian American and Pacific islanders and American Indian and native Americans and historically black colleges and universities.
While all of these may be well intended the latest jobless announced on March 7.
Barely a week after the sequester cuts were locked into place what about the timing of this.
Well I think that.
It could be seen as insensitive.
These these any reservation school districts are talking about shortening their school years they're cutting extracurricular activities.
They're not feeling.
Vacant teaching jobs they're stuffing more kids into classrooms and that sort of thing.
And while this this job may be important and may be may have a lot of merit.
Coming days literally days after the sequester cuts were locked and insisting.
I'm putting out right now is the White House cherry picking areas.
Of -- sequester cuts to make political points what do you think about it.
I think that's probably true I mean they -- that they released when he 200 illegal alien criminal can offenders convicted offenders.
The week before sequester kicked in saying that it was related to sequester.
Com they they've canceled the White House stewards but they're keeping the the wine and beer tumors open that -- federally funded.
I I think it's not an issue of the really priorities for them I think there is a lot of just.
Hedging their bet that the American public won't find out.
What they are funding what they are.
Well -- -- dial back the the White House to -- -- -- -- now and I'm so I'm pretty conflicted about this obviously because.
Charlie Rangel is -- member of congress I happen to be after Americans so the appointment of somebody to -- position to deal with the issues particularly.
Regarding the achievement gap between that.
-- students but because it's extremely important my guess is that this has been in the works for quite some time.
I think we've secretary Duncan's focus on education reform of the kinds of initiatives that you started with similar initiative here.
In New York City under Mayor Bloomberg I do think that this is very important issue but I will also add that.
Since -- get a lot of my conventional wisdom and Chris Rock.
He says there really are.
-- you thought ever in foods whenever.
You think that you've been the victim of discrimination think about the left I'm seeing the native American and we -- the -- so having said that.
Speaking for money away and resources away from.
