House Christmas Tree Takes a Budget the top

The elves within the Office of the Chief Clerk have done it again! Every year, the House Christmas Tree, located in the parlor area outside the Chief Clerk's office, reflects the important issues of the day. For 2009, the theme is "Budget Cuts".

Not only did the tree take a 20% reduction, it has also been "delamped".

The tree has many friends to support it during these hard times. Surrounding its base are those who have received pink slips, furlough days, layoffs and early retirement.

By coming together, the Christmas spirit still shines bright, even without a few bulbs. But, what happened to the top part?
