Default How should I feel about this?

Obama gave federal workers a day off on Monday, December 24th. Since the holiday falls on a Tuesday, he decided to give federal workers the extra day to extend the holiday weekend.

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.
