Pick one holiday where the federal workforce is out of office but with with no pay.
Save Millions: Establish 911 as a national day of mourning and national deficit day. Close the government on this date just like any other holiday but employees would not get paid for this one day.
Close all offices except essential personnel the day after Thanksgiving. Many people use this day and its a waste to operate with lights, energy, guards, etc... for a few people.
Federal Employees appreciate the time-off we get from our national federal holidays, and we appreciate our country too.
As mentioned in a previous entry, Election Day should be a national federal holiday, but I suggest that all national federal holidays should be unpaid time-off.
