While I will admit I misread the $50 / hour cost, I still stand by my opinion. Yes, the White House is owned, collectively, by all of the citizens in the U.S but, based solely on the number of taxpayers who take the tour compared to the number who pay for it, this is STILL an example of the majority paying the way for a tiny minority. If those taking the tour pay to cover the costs of making the tour available, I'm all for it. If I want a tour of the White House, I don't see any reason why YOUR taxes should be higher (even by a fraction of a penny) to pay for my tour.
