President to Give Back 5% of His Salary?
In this article the President has saids he plans to return 5 percent of his salary to the Treasury in solidarity with federal workers who are going to be furloughed as part of the automatic budget cuts known as the sequester…
I’ve tried to have nothing but respect for the president, he was handed a country swirling down the toilet and then blamed for all the problems he inhereted but this? This is an entirely empty gesture… 5% of a salary that DOESN’T buy gas for his car, put food in his kid’s mouths, pay medical expenses, utility bills, nothing.
I’d gladly give up 5% of my disability check if my every need was provided for and *I* had a helicoptor and limo on the front lawn at my beck and call.
