Feeling bad because you couldn't afford a vacation this year?  Don't. The Feds are delaying theirs too because of  the budget battles.

The issues facing Congress and the President will keep them away from the slopes or Caribbean for some time. According to the NY Daily Post:

Obama could handle his presidential business in Hawaii – he signed last year's stimulus bill while on vacation in Denver – but Gibbs comments suggested that the President wants to settle all accounts before heading west.

So while you're freezing at home, think of the poor saps in D.C.
