    Do you think congress should limit the number of vacation days the president is allowed? How many vacation days should a president be allowed to take per year? What sounds fair vs excessive to you?


    Poll to follow.

    why do you think congress would have the RIGHT to tell the executive when to vacation?

    first they'd have to limit their own, anyway.

    or did you forget congress works about 100 days a year?

    I don't think congress should try to limit the presidential vacation days. It was a question, not a statement in the OP.

    However, I'd say 6 weeks worth a year sounds good to me.

    Let's not confuse a vacation with a little down time.
