The Week Ahead: The Week of December 24

By December 24, 2007General

Congress this week is safely tucked in their beds, while visions of earmarks, er, sugar plums, dance in their heads. Except the Senate returns on Boxing Day and Friday for pro forma sessions to prevent President Bush from making recess appointments.

The President and First Lady are in Camp David for Christmas and then Crawford, Tex., for the rest of the week. Here’s the President’s Christmas message.

A few economic reports this week, including quarterly hogs and pigs on Thursday and a report on new home sales Friday.

Meanwhile, NORAD will track Santa’s arrival from the North Pole on Christmas eve. Thank goodness the omnibus spending bill passed.
