Despite the fact that the fiscal cliff hasn’t been addressed yet, Obama announces his 17 day Christmas vacation.
17 consecutive days off is hard to come by without taking extra days off for most of us in the private sector. Couple that with the looming debt crisis and fiscal cliff we are reaching, we should not have to pay for him to vacation in HAWAII of all places.
While most Americans are lucky to get a few weeks of holiday every year, it seems the country’s leader gets a little more freedom in the matter.
President Barack Obama has announced his Christmas vacation to Hawaii – for a staggering 17-day trip.
Obama, who visited the island just two weeks ago for an economic summit, will head to Honolulu on Saturday December 17 until Monday January 2.
