Friday, President Obama reacted to the Senate’s failure to pass his gimmicky Payroll Tax Cut Extension:
“We need to get this done. And I expect that it’s going to get done before Congress leaves. Otherwise, Congress may not be leaving and we can all spend Christmas here together.”
Apparently, Congress will be adjourning to Hawaii, because the White House announced tonight that Barack Obama will take a 17 day vacation in Hawaii over the holidays. Can’t let a payroll tax extension get in the way of a few rounds on the links. Nice work if you can get it.
