Vacations are 100 percent awesome, yet only 57 percent of Americans take all of their vacation time. With the 2012 election campaign in full swing, Orbitz has founded the Vacation Party to secure Americans' vacation rights.
"In a Vacation Party survey of the electorate, 41 percent said that the current presidential candidates are not pro-vacation," said Chris Orton, president of Orbitz.com. "Orbitz is seeking a Vacation Party candidate who will help us preserve the greatness of travel for future generations. And we're prepared to back that candidate with a contribution of $25,000 in travel."
Orbitz is looking for a leader of the Vacation Party who will cut the vacation deficit, provide universal access to beachfront views, and fill hotel rooms from sea to shining sea. The winning candidate will be chosen via Facebook election.
