With a 16 Trillion plus debt and no agreement yet on how to fix it and shed some Fat off Govt expenditures do you really think politicians should in Washington should be taking any time off until they reach a solution?

The politicians made the deficit not us. Take the 16 tril. out of their pay and benefits.

I work in a nursing home. I don't work, I don't get paid, no matter the day. I work a 2nd job, so I work 5-6 days -week, and am blessed to have it.

Our elected officials forget who they work for. It's a disgrace they're gettiing a week off for President's day. If they're all home with their constituents why are they not visible in the community? Now Obama wants to push back the date to resolve the country's debt and economic situation? The Office of President carries with it respect for the position, the person holding the office has to earn that respect by actions and deeds.

Responsible voters must act on this issue, the rest will undoubtedly remain sitting on their hands, makes me sick, but what we do as individuals except voice our opinions and take what action we deem appropriate. How about a recall!!!!! How about something we can all sign that will correct the problem??

It's fine that they have those days off but I for one do not wish to pay for it with my HARD EARNED money. So take a NO PAY holiday or GET BACK TO WORK like the rest of us REAL AMERICANS.

I am not sure I want to honor any of the recent presidents. They appear to be controlled by the financial cabal. Otherwise how else can the banks be counterfeiting money? We are not in debt for 16 trillion dollars....we are debt for 200 trillion dollars. Consumer debt is 12.5 trillion (car, house, school, personal, credit cards, etc., loans). The thing is that the system is rigged, if money is to exist, it needs to be borrowed and now you must pay a corresponding interest on that...

It is actually ridiculous to think that the government needs to borrow its own money.
