    A pair of Republican senators have proposed replacing Columbus Day on the federal government’s list of official holidays with Juneteenth.

    Sens. James Lankford (R-Okla.) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) made the proposal Wednesday as an amendment to a bill sponsored by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) that would recognize Juneteenth as a federal holiday.

    Johnson objected to adding another day of holiday pay to the federal calendar, and viewed eliminating Columbus Day as a fair compromise.

    “In response to a bipartisan effort to give federal workers another day of paid leave by designating Juneteenth a federal holiday, we have offered a counterproposal that does not put us further in debt,” Johnson said in a statement Wednesday.

    We're replacing Colonizer Day with Liberation Day. I'll take it.

    Do people even celebrate Columbus Day? I don't think I've ever had that day off.

    Banks and federal workers do. Otherwise, I've always had to work on that day. So I could care less.

    Ask yourself why they want to just rearrange the days instead of having both days and renaming one
