As a federal employee I think, cool - free day off.
As a tax payer I think, WTH? If federal employees want to stretch out the holiday weekend, they should have to use a vacation day.
Super high debt. Facing the "Fiscal Cliff".
so let's spend some huge amount of money paying federal workers for a day not worked/earned.
I think they should have cancelled Christmas for Congress until the "fiscal cliff" issue is resolved. If our soldiers are expected to work through the holidays, then so should our government.
