Obama Issued An Executive Order Closing Offices Christmas Eve, Cost To Taxpayers, $100 Million.


Obama Issued An Executive Order Closing Offices Christmas Eve, Cost To Taxpayers, $100 Million.

‘Twas the day before Christmas and all across the federal government, workers were enjoying an extra day off after President Obama issued an executive order closing offices Monday and excusing all but postal service employees from duty.

The estimated cost for shutting down the government for a day is $100 million.

Obama signed the Executive order on Friday closing all federal executive departments and agencies on Christmas Eve and making the day a holiday for their workers.

The decision to grant federal employees a four-day weekend came after 28,257 people signed an online petition on the White House “We the People” website requesting it.

Aside from Christmas Eve, federal workers received 10 paid holidays in 2012, according to the Office of Personnel Management.

Workers who already had planned to use annual leave to take off Christmas Eve will not be charged for the day off, according to a memo for executive agencies from John Berry, director of the Office of Personnel Management.

Representatives of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and the White House Office of Management and Budget did not immediately respond to requests for comment Monday.

A rival petition on the White House website asked Obama only to allow federal workers to use some of their “generous amount” of annual leave on Christmas Eve.

“We do not need to be given another holiday when so many people are looking for work,” read the petition, purported to be from federal workers. That petition, created on Dec. 18, had 487 signatures.

Obama signed the executive order anyway, costing the American taxpayers another $100 Million Dollars, remember we have to borrow the money to pay for this generous Christmas Gift.
