If one wants to give the items named in the song The Twelve Days of Christmas, the price is up to nearly $100,000. That is actually a good thing. It means the economy is beginning to recover. Why, then, is Obama caving to the Republicans and freezing pay for federal workers? That will save $5 billion in two years, a very small amount compared to the staggering sum of the deficit created under Republican rule and reign. Why didn't they care then?
President Obama, get us out of war zones and imperial policing. Really save some money. Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but no matter what Obama does, the conservatives will attack, so why not speak firmly to what led to the deficit and come out fighting where it counts.
Back to Christmas carols, giving and "peace on earth". If you are considering buying a pear tree without a partridge, the price did not go up this year.
