House of Representatives, say it with me, MERRY CHRISTMAS.....

     
           Members of  the House of Representatives can not say Merry Christmas in any  taxpayer funded or Franked  mail.( Members submit official mailings for review by the congressional franking commission to determine if it can be "franked," or paid for with tax dollars, are being told that no holiday greetings, including "Merry Christmas," can be sent in official mail.)



Franking Manual:

4(a). Example of Nonfrankable Items
-Birthday, anniversary, wedding, birth, retirement or condolence messages and holiday greetings are prohibited.”
You may make reference to the season as a whole using language along the lines of 'Have a safe and happy holiday season.' It may only be incidental to the piece rather than the primary purpose of the communication."



         A franking commission spokesperson confirmed, Members of Congress  cannot wish constituents "Merry Christmas" in any official mailing.
"Currently, incidental use of the phrase Happy Holidays is permissible but Merry Christmas is not," said the spokesperson.


          OK so, elected representatives of  the people  with "In God We Trust" on its money can't use the greeting that has probably been used  by almost everyone,  no matter what religion, for who knows how long. What has this country come to????????????????????????????

 America take heart; Senators may express holidays greetings, Merry Christmas, at the  conclusion of otherwise "frankable" mail.
