I think the economy is more important than a vacation.  I also think that the president and members of Congress should suspend their own pay and have that money go into the budget and pay down some of the debt.

I agree..

I know that everyone needs that time away from their job, but that being said.. This is no regular job, and I feel that everyone .. Congress wise should work hard to fix this.. including no extra spending...

Like.. vacations, expensive cars, and meals.. Just as we are doing as the Little people.. We have to cut back, so why can't they?

Exactly.  These two buses that they just bought are the perfect example of spending that shouldn't have been.  They are pointless.  And what about all this stuff about going green as a country?  Yeah, two huge diesel guzzling buses are the perfect thing to advertise going green.  There is no need for those buses.  What's wrong with the way things have been?  

Sorry, didn't mean to rant there.

Eh, I don't care.  Really.  It's a stressful job.  He deserves time off.
