Emergency Work on Hoidays

Congress should not be alowed to take holidays off during national emergencies; fiscal or otherwise. My guess is if we had another Pearl Harbor everyone would show up. When the rehtric to the public is laced with any sort of indication that there is emergency action needed then there should be no holiday recess for congress until it is resolved. Example is the current fiscal crisis. and certainly no emergency, additional or hazardous duty pay should be awarded this action.

I wonder how many soilders in combat would like to take every holiday off! Maybe weekends too...
