We have a major financial/economic crisis and our political leaders are taking a break. They did not do anything of significance to warrant a break. It just shows how irresponsible the politicians have become. They are not concerned about what is in the best interest of the country or their constituents, only what benefits them. Their salaries should be frozen and all leaves canceled until this situation is resolved and out country is back on track. They need to do their job and focus on what is best for uniting America.
