Total Joke: Obama to take 5% pay cut to show Solidarity with Furloughed Workers

In a Budget Gesture, Obama Will Return 5% of His Salary

The voluntary move would be retroactive to March 1 and apply through the rest of the calendar year, the official said. The White House came up with the 5 percent figure to approximate the level of automatic spending cuts to non-defense federal agencies that took effect that day.
