Clearing this up...

He voted for the holiday to be held on the third Monday of January.
He voted against the *paid federal* holiday.

Can you quote me the section

of the Constitution that authorizes Congress to make holidays, no matter who they are for?

Or should they do whatever they please, because it sounds nice to some special interest group, regardless that they are not authorized to do it?

i didn't know that he did.

i didn't know that he did. but if so, i would imagine it is because of the regulations on business when there are federal holidays. e.g. time-and-a-half pay, mandatory vac pay, etc. that hurt businesses, workers and consumers.
