Meanwhile federal bureaucrats have to drag their families to soup kitchens on Christmas Day. Deplorable.

Mackris and Null Set already got Trump for Christmas, so they don't care.

Andy got a big tax cut out of it, but all Nulli got was kids in cages and his Official Trump Troll badge.

And Santa is bringing Mueller a Trump indictment in a pear tree.

I do not believe that is mandated by law; rather it's traditionally tacked on to whatever legislation Congress passes to fund government again.

And I'm sure banks won't charge bounced check fees.

And banks won't mind if mortgage payments are late; neither will landlords be charging late fees.
