The idea that a "holiday' will hurt the economy is ridiculous. How about the 1700 billion spent so far on the war in Iraq and Afghan? If the Federal Government was really concerned about money they would of shut down on 9/12/2001. I do not care if this response is declined...that idea is preposterous
If a new holiday was to be declared in February, fine, pay me for it, but I am not celebrating it. Holidays stress me, and others around me, out. I don't think it's good for our economy, I don't think it's good for our workers, I don't think it's the smart choice at the end of the day.
