    This Good NEWS has spread faster than anything I have ever seen. (Not hugely impacted, but if the U.S> Congress can give themselves another day off and stop working with all that's at stake, the day in day out Feds who do the REAL work of this Nation can surely enjoy a gift from our Boss, the President, as well!) Thank you President Obama
