If Congress wants us to love them again, all they have to do is this. Make the day after the Super Bowl a National Holiday, so we can all get it off of work. Right now there’s a petition on the White House’s website calling for it . . . but it needs almost 90,000 more signatures by February 23rd to get an official response from the Obama administration…
There’s not necessarily any indication that Congress or President Obama have any plans of turning the Monday after the Super Bowl into a national holiday. But it’s worth a try. An extra day off of work never hurt anyone.
Just Google “Declare the Monday following the Super Bowl a national holiday.”
So far, the petition has more than 10,000 signatures. It needs to get to 100,000 by February 23rd to get an official response from the Obama administration.
