But it’s on government land. So why isn’t it shut down, like the Lake Mead homes or The Cliff House? Is the president’s golf more important than missing children or morale of our troops?

One of Obama’s preferred golf courses, the course on Andrews Airforce Base remains open during the government shutdown.

The grocery stores on the base, where troops get discounted groceries for their families are, however, closed. They will shop “at local stores that cost about 30 percent more, Lieutenant General Raymond Mason, the service’s deputy chief of staff for logistics, said yesterday at a House hearing.”
